objective is to encourage public debate and raise awareness about the role of Serbian
radical groups in propagating ethnic cleansing in former Yugoslavia. To achieve this
objective the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights disseminates information emerging from
the trial of Vojislav Seselj about the role of radical groups in propagating ethnic
cleansing in former Yugoslavia. Since this trial provides a unique opportunity to open up
public dialogue on the recent past and promote a new set of values necessary for Serbia's
transformation into a modern democracy, the project focuses on the wider public,
especially the youth. The project activities include online distribution of the trial
analyses and reports illustrative of its substance, quarterly panel discussions at
Serbia's major university centers, TV debates on regional TV stations, and stage local
campaigns by and for young people. Some segments of this 12-month project are implemented
in partnership with the Youth Initiative for Human Rights (YIHR).
The project is realized thanks to the assistance of the National
Endowment for Democracy.
