PROJECTS OF THE FORUM FOR INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Forum for International Relations, in addition to Regular Meetings participate in the implementation of projects and the organization of public and expert debates in the field of foreign policy and international level, at European and world level.

The Forum has often addressed the general public with its evaluations, opinions, initiatives and documents. Among other things, it offered a Draft Platform for an Alternative Foreign Policy, the documents “Yugoslavia, at the end of the Century: Which road to Europe and the World?”, and the publication “Yugoslavia and the World”, in which some thirty specialized analysts, members of the Forum set forth their views on all key issues of Yugoslavia’s foreign political relations with the major international factors and individual states – great powers, European nations, neighbouring countries etc. That analysis served as the basis for a debate on foreign policy priorities which took place immediately following the democratic changes in October 2000.

The regular “Foreign Policy Papers”, in which Forum analyses were published, became mandatory reading matter for those who wished to critically consider our international position. Regular contributions by and interviews with Forum members in independent local media, foreign newspapers and on TV and radio stations were also of considerable importance. Between 1996 and 2000 eight editions of “Foreign Policy Papers” were published. Immediately after Foreign Policy Papers, the magazine Forum was established, which was published once a month and it was a collection of contributions of prominent authors and was aimed at the general public, and discussed foreign policy and international affairs. After that in the period 2008-2009. European Movement in Serbia and the Forum for International Relations published six editions of European Papers, the bimonthly magazine intended for the general public.


Forum also organized few open sessions dedicated to current international policy issues. In Belgrade, on June 13, 2002 organized a round table "The Hague Tribunal and Yugoslavia - Challenges of Cooperation". This public debate was opened by Federal Secretary for Foreign Affairs and President of the National Council for Cooperation with the ICTY, Mr. Goran Svilanovic. Then on October 9, 2007 held a public debate on the topic "Creating Serbian Foreign Policy - Institutional and Non-institutional actors", and on January 30, 2008, the public debate "Is there an alternative to the European path of Serbia?".
