Making history by changing the education of history is the longstanding goal of the Joint History Project, under which the CDRSEE invited 15 Albanian history teachers from Kosovo for an educational workshop in Pristina.
The fourth JHP workshop in Montenegro was completed with great success, with the participating teachers asking for more workbooks and opportunities to attend additional workshops. The CDRSEE, together with its local partner, the Bureau for Education Services, hosted 22 teachers in Podgorica for the last two days of May.
The overall objective is to promote reconciliation in the Western Balkans. In particular, Vicinities strives to create an open dialogue on a series of controversial regional issues and foster debate, an ultimately, reconciliation.
Vicinities has no hidden agenda. The intention is to turn communication, which had boiled down to only the necessary minimum over the past 20 years, into something normal and desirable.
The CDRSEE successfully completed the 3rd Teacher Training Workshop in Croatia. Twenty history teachers from the beautiful Istria province gathered on May 18th and 19th in Pula and participated in another Joint History Project Workshop that CDRSEE organized in Croatia together with its local partners, the Croatian History Teachers Association (HUNP) and the Croatian Education and Teacher Training Agency.

A lively and young group of teachers from the Osijek-Baranja county in North-east Croatia gathered in the town of Beli Manastir just 16 Km from the boarders with Hungary for the second TTW in Croatia.
The innovative news talk show Vicinities was in the spotlight, and for good reason, as journalists from around the region gathered in Belgrade for the launch of the series’ second season, the chance to talk with the lead organisers, and a sneak peak at the issues to be covered in the upcoming months.
The PhD, MA and BA students from different backgrounds and positions came together to listen, debate and create, as part of a meaningful and successful pilot project that allowed youth to take charge of their future and come up with solutions to the current global economic crisis.
Vicinities Editor in Chief Zvezdana Kovac, in Berlin, introduced the second season with a video montage from the show’s rehearsal and presented four key Vicinities guests, who engaged the government officials from the Western Balkans in lively debate and conversation about prejudice and identity, just as is expected on the show itself.
