Think globally, act locally: Empowering young people



After two days focusing on empowering young people and enabling them to have a better understanding of the content regarding rule of law and fundamental rights, the international workshop “Rule of law and fundamental rights – why is it important for the youth and how youth can contribute to monitor reforms in these fields” organized in Mostar, has successfully finished. Around 20 youngsters had opportunity to follow a series of workshops and be part of different activities. 

The European union was in one of the major topics discussed throughout the workshop, particularly the set of values, standards and principles that one country should have in order to became a member. The conclusion was that the countries should strive to implement the EU directives and regulations firstly for their own benefit and afterwards as a condition to EU accession.

The youngsters had the opportunity to express their opinion regarding fundamental rights by critical analysis of their own countries and in comparison to the others. The outcome of this workshop was gaining knowledge for the situation on the Western Balkans regarding this questions on the one hand and creating a set of recommendations on the other.

The international workshop “Rule of law and fundamental rights – why is it important for the youth and how youth can contribute to monitor reforms in these fields was organized in the framework of the project “Regional youth compact for Europe”, which is implemented by the Center for Democracy Foundation, Balkan Network for Local Democracy, CRTA, Youth Act and Sodem. This project is funded by the European Union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
