Brave New Kosovo

25-10-2005

15 november 2005


Zes jaar verder is Kosovo uitgegroeid tot het meest ultieme Social Engineering project ter wereld. Politici, militia, activisten, journalisten, ambtenaren, criminelen en expats bouwen samen aan een Brave New Kosovo.

Nu maken we de balans op. Waar gaat het heen met Kosovo? Bundesrepublik of Bananenstaat? Zijn er grenzen aan de maakbaarheid? Kosovo tussen tekentafelutopisme en Realpopulisme; een debat over de toekomst van Kosovo, en hoe wij die vormen.

Hivos, Press Now, IKV, FNV Mondiaal, Pax Christi, ATA, Alfred Mozer Stichting en Partizan Publik hebben de belangrijke spelers naar Amsterdam gehaald. Een dag met o.a. Veton Surroi (parlementslid ORA, Geuzenpenninglaureaat, o.v.) Besnik Tahiri (adviseur van de Kosovaarse premier Kosumi), Oliver Ivanovic (voorzitter Servische Raad Mitrovica, parlementslid), Alexandros Yannis (EU, Kosovo-adviseur van Solana, hoge vertegenwoordiger voor buitenlands beleid), Johan te Velde (hoofd vredesprogramma's Pax Christi, voormalig directeur Democratisering OVSE Pristina), Jeta Xharra (activist-journaliste, IWPR Kosovo), Francesco Strazzeri (politicoloog, UvA), Filip Pavlovic (NGO Fractal, Belgrado), Valdete Idrizi (CBM Mitrovica), Avni Mazreku (international secretariat PDK), Chris Keulemans (journalist, directeur a.i.

Brave New Kosovo

To what extend can a society be created?

15 november 2005

 

In 1999 Milosevic was bombed out of Kosovo. While the Serbian army retreated, the international community started the task of building a new democratic Kosovo. An open and tolerant Kosovo full of potential.

 

Six years down the road Kosovo has developed into the world's ultimate Social Engineering project. Politicians, militia, activists, journalists, civil servants, criminals and expats are all working together on building a Brave New Kosovo.

 

The time has come to assess the results. What is Kosovo coming to? Bundesrepublik or Bananarepublic? Are there limits to the extent that we can 'create'a society? Kosovo between drawing board utopianism and cold hard reality; a debate on the future of Kosovo, and how we create it.

 

Hivos, Press Now, IKV, FNV Mondiaal, Pax Christi, ATA, Alfred Mozer Stichting en Partizan Publik have brought the key players to Amsterdam. A day with Veton Surroi (member of the parliament ORA, Geuzenpenning award) Besnik Tahiri (political advisor to the Kosovar premier Kosumi), Oliver Ivanovic (member of parliament SLKM), Alexandros Yannis (EU, Kosovo-advisor to Solana, DG for External and Politico-Military Affairs), Johan te Velde (head of peace program Pax Christi, ex-director Democratisation OCSE Pristina), Jeta Xharra (activist-journalist, IWPR Kosovo), Francesco Strazzeri (political scientist, UvA), Filip Pavlovic (NGO Fractal, Belgrade), Valdete Idrizi (CBM Mitrovica), Avni Mazreku (international secretariat PDK), Chris Keulemans (journalist, director De Balie) and many more.
