Young Parliamentarians' Project

CDRSEE organized four seminars in Thessaloniki that joined Members of Parliament from Southeast Europe, Western Europe and the European Parliament, as well as numerous professionals, economists, and journalists to discuss issues of concern for the region. Four topics were focussed on in the seminars: the working of parliamentary democracy, the relationship between politics and the media, the working of a free market economy, and the organisation of political parties. The participants of the conferences all recognised and noted the importance of reconciliation in the region, and the vitality of dialogues such as the ones facilitated through this project for reaching that goal.
