Conference: ‘Women on the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia’ – (Tuesday, 2 April 2019, 9:30 a.m) at Swiss Diamond Hotel Prishtina ( Conference Room: Dyar)

Dear journalists :

Honored media:

The Research Institute of Development and European Affairs (RIDEA) is pleased to invite you to attend the conference - Women on Dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia - (Tuesday, 2 April 2019, 09:30) at Swiss Diamond Hotel Prishtina (Conference room: Dyar).

In addition, the conference will address some of the current issues, as follows:

What are the current relations between Kosovo and Serbia? Should dialogue be continued between Kosovo and Serbia? How to deal with 100% tariff on Serbian goods? From various international actors it is suggested that 2019 may be the year of eventual final agreement between Kosovo and Serbia. How should this suggestion be addressed and what should be the eventual agreement between Kosovo and Serbia? The State Delegation of Kosovo for dialogue with Serbia has no woman in its composition. How should this fact be assessed and how should action be taken to change this situation? How do women see women's role in the final phase of the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue?

We invite you to attend this event.

In addition to the panelists that you can find on the agenda below, other participants will be international accredited diplomats in Kosovo, officials of Kosovo institutions, civil society activists, and representatives from the academic world.
