After ten months of research with the support of Civica Mobilitas on the research project entitled:  “Straightening the youth dialogue for democracy promotion in the light of Euro-Atlantic integration”, the Euro - Atlantic Council of Macedonia organized the second of the series of workshops which are planned to be held in several cities in the country aimed at promoting the results of the research and to stimulate discussion on the related topics. The event took place on 18.10.2017 in the premises of FON University in Struga.


After the presentation of the results and the short outline of the project’s goals by the moderator Mr. Ilija Djugumanov, Mr Ismet Ramadani, the President of the EACM and Project Director, addressed the present students and stressed the importance of the contribution of youth in the democratic and Euro-Atlantic processes by utilizing all the resources and capacities.


Prof. Dr. Nano Ruzin, Rector of the FON University, in his speech explained the role and goals of NATO in order to make the students familiar with the importance of integration. He also emphasized the need of their contribution in the NATO integration processes.


Cap. Ivajlo Toshirov, representative from the NATO Liaison Office in Skopje, he argued for the necessity of youth to be well-trained, educated and capable of sharing experience and qualities and to help the country in the integration process which in his words was frozen with some steps from the past.


Prof. Dr. Mersel Biljali said that the Macedonia has an interest to keep the youth within its borders and to encourage them to seek opportunities in their home country. He also said that the future NATO integration will have an impact in opening opportunities for youth.

There was a discussion that followed after the speeches that opened many important questions related to the role of the youth in the Euro-Atlantic processes.
