Mediterranean Research Meeting, 24-27 March 2010

ECMI’s PD Dr. Jan Asmussen and Dr. Oleh Protsyk participated in the workshop “Rethinking interethnic reconciliation in the Western Balkans: borders, minorities, governance” at the European University Institute’s 11th Mediterranean Research Meeting. The ECMI-sponsored event took place at Montecatini Terme, Italy 24-27 March 2010.
The workshop brought together an inter-disciplinary group of researchers from Europe, US, and Israel. Alternative approaches to interethnic reconciliation in the Western Balkans, such as cross-border, transnational, trans-communitarian, minority-majority projects, actions or experiments and various innovative forms of governance were discussed. The discussion highlighted the ongoing nature of the reconciliation process in the Balkans and emphasized the importance of academic and policy research in this area. Participants agreed to participate in follow-up events as ECMI will continue to pursue new avenues to reconciliation in the Western Balkans and elsewhere.
