IFLRY has the pleasure of welcoming applicants for a seminar on Peace, democracy, and cooperation in Northeast Europe, taking place in Stockholm, Sweden between the 5th and 8th of October.
The region of Northeast Europe has been plagued by conflicts throughout history and though the conflicts are fewer, we still see violence in the region and tensions are still high between some of the countries.
The aim of this seminar is to bring together young people from Northeast Europe to discuss what can be done to promote long-term peace in the region. This topic will be explored by discussing several topics such as democracy, advocacy, youth participation, and how to fight populism. We will also discuss what we can do to integrate countries within the EU, how the eastern partnership can be improved and what we can do to promote cooperation between our countries. In the spirit of promoting cooperation,
we will also have some joint sessions together with Social Democrats who are hosting an event in Stockholm during the same weekend.
Please see here our invitation for more detailed info. Applications will be taken on a rolling basis, so make sure you apply as soon as possible to secure yourself a spot. Deadline for applying is until the 10th of September. You can access the application form here.
