Plenary Panel 3: Belgrade and Pristina, Normalizing Comprehensively (supported by Canada Fund and in partnership with Council for Inclusive Governance)
- Why has the previous dialogue failed?
- Is the process of normalization dead? Can it be revived? How to rebuild the trust between the parties?
- How to reset and resume the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina within the changing context?
- Who must be involved in the dialogue?
- What should be the content of the dialogue?
- How should it be organized? Should there be deadlines?
- How much secrecy does the future dialogue need?
- Would it be possible to continue without discussing the “border correction” idea?
- Are there solutions that include a de jure recognition of Pristina by Serbia?
What is the fate of the Kosovo Serbs following an agreement between Belgrade and Pristina*?
The panel aims to explore opportunities to move forward in the Belgrade-Pristina relations, reset the Dialogue and reach a compromise resulting in sustainable peace. It will introduce new voices of young male and female experts and professionals researching and dealing with the issues of regional relations and security. The focus is thus shifted from high state and European officials, to experts and journalists living and working in the communities most affected by the dispute and young researchers providing a fresh take on the matter.
