Reconciliation in Europe - the role of the EU: Stari Most

Congratulations to Rubina Böske, Benyamin Diab, Johannes Osterkamp and Yoheit Sato!

They will research the influence of the European Union and international organisations on the reconciliation process in the city of Mostar. The goal is to analyze measures taken by the international community and their actual effect in Mostar, in order to come up with ideas to further support the on-going reconciliation.


Congratulations! We look forward to the project and the public presentation next spring!
