EU values and Enlargement

LDA CSS, Center for Civil Resources Development and Media Research Centre Nis in cooperation with the Office for European Affairs of the City of Nis and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) began with preparation of the exhibition entitled “Strong Words” in May 2011.

The exhibition “STRONG WORDS” will be held from 27 June to 1 July 2011. in the European corner and will consist of the selected photos from the call for photographers invited to record examples of the hate speech on the walls of our city.
Photographs will form a whole that will be followed by texts which will point out the ideological sources of graffiti that insult the human rights and human dignity. We want to emphasise the importance of promoting human rights and tolerance but also to draw attention to the terrible consequences that can result by the tolerating of hate speech.
We believe that the results of those kinds of activities can make a significant contribution to guiding the citizens of Serbia to respect human rights as one of three key values underpinning the European Union.
