A kind of inroduction
As one of the goals of the Center for EU Enlargement Studies (CENS) is to promote dialogue between EU member states and partners in Eastern and Southern Europe, our participation in the “Active Citizenship, Visegrad and Central Europe” project was a great opportunity to meet representatives from these countries outside the EU. This meeting was also an excellent platform to share our insights about the situation of the civil society with the neighboring regions, but also to deepen our knowledge about the situation in the participants’ countries.
Perspectives shared by Ketrina Çabiri – Project Manager in UET Centre
Participating in national and international projects is an everyday job for Project Managers. However some projects may be particularly distinguished from others, in terms of information and knowledge you and your organization gain/share, inter/national people you meet and new cultural approach you get to know, as well as new possibilities of cooperation and participation you are offered.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Jana Tomková for supporting and accommodating this event and also Mr. Attila Szomolányi and his team for realising this great project.
Today, 15 February, is a red marked day in the calendar of all Central Europeans, since it was exactly 21 years ago when the Visegrad Group was founded. Despite of the rather plastic political situation that time, the initial goals were clear: the cooperation was mainly inspired by the view of a fast catching-up and integration to the West and the Euro-Atlantic structures.
