Dusan Sidjanski, President of the European Cultural Center and Special Advisor to the President of the European Commission

The collapse of the former Yugoslavia and the civil and ethnic wars which followed were among major factors which provoked the re-emergence of feelings of nationalism. Sidjianski will discuss the present situation in southeastern Europe with particular focus on Kosovo. The role of Greece will be discussed especially in relations with the European Union and Balkan countries.
