Aims & Objectives

1. Contribute to the formation of a more self-aware public opinion fostering analytical thinking and empathy. The capacity of media to shape public opinion in the beginning of the Yugoslav wars will be compared to their contemporary role.
2. Cultivate civic attitudes that can bolster effective conflict management on behalf of the EU. By recollecting the role of public opinion during the Yugoslav wars, a comparison of public attitudes towards ongoing conflicts and its impact on EU’s foreign policy will be made.
3. Promote EU integration by fostering reconsideration of EU’s enlargement policy and raising awareness on distorted memories and false perceptions of both sides.
