Gordana Igric, BIRN Network Director will be conducting a series of meetings in Bosnia and Herzegovina in August as part of the research phase for BIRN`s new regional project. The project will work to assist the EU integration process in the Western Balkans, through the development of a platform between local media, civil society organisations and donors in the region to ensure a broad public discussion and support for the Balkans` accession into the European Union.
Igric already conducted meetings with European Movement in Albania, GAP institute, KCSF, KIPRED, COHU and YIHR in Kosovo. A series of meetings is planned in Serbia in September.
With the new regional project BIRN aims to establish a platform for the flow of information and the exchange of experiences between the relevant actors in all countries of the Western Balkans as well as in Bulgaria and Romania.
