European Academy of Diplomacy: 2013 Political Transformation Workshop

As the only representative from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Populari’s Policy Researcher Ajdin Perčo participated in the Workshop of Political Transformation held from June 24-28, 2013 in Warsaw, Poland and organized by the European Academy of Diplomacy.

Ajdin took part in a week-long Political Transformation Workshop organized by European Academy of Diplomacy in Warsaw. Series of discussions with interesting participants covering topics such as Croatian path to the EU, political situation in BiH and ex-Yugoslavia as well as the role of Turkey as an emerging power took place. Some of the keynote speakers included ambassador of Croatia to Poland Ivan del Veccio, Marek A. Nowicki from Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, Zbigniew Pisarski from Polish think tank Casimir Pulaski Foundation etc.

Also, participants had an opportunity to visit renowned institutions located in Warsaw such as for example the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights – ODIHR and foreign embassies. Last two days were spent in developing practical skills such as negotiations and public speaking. By participating in this event, Ajdin not only developed his skills but managed to meet new and interesting people and expand Populari’s ever-growing network of friends and partners. Events like this are important as one of the main channels through which policy researchers from BiH can get an international exposure and benefit from the experience of their peers from other countries.
