ESI in Belgrade the Cost of Non-Europe

A few days before Serbia's elections Eggert Hardten and Gerald Knaus present ESI's most recent Serbia research in Belgrade's Aero Club under the title The cost of non-Europe in Serbia. The research they present forms part of the large New Economic Geography of the Balkans project supported by Erste Stiftung in Vienna. Discussants included Gordana Lazarevic - assistant minister for international economic relations of Serbia, Sonja Licht, and Milica Djilas. Gerald Knaus also gives two interviews to RTS and another private Serbian TV station about the research. Eggert Hardten attends the convention of the Democratic Party.

Alan Grant is an Irish photographer who travelled extensively in the Balkans and other countries and regions of the world. Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
