Regional School Security 2021

The project which we have been implementing during the past six years aims to foster exchange and friendship between the countries in the region and is focused on bringing together students and young professionals, as well as academics and experts from the region in order to discuss and exchange experience on current topics, tackling mainly regional security and regional cooperation.

This year, the KAS will bring together students and academics from four countries in the region, i.e. from North Macedonia, Albania, Greece and Serbia, who, during three days, will have the opportunity to discuss and exchange views on this very relevant topic, which concerns all countries in the region.

Following speakers will have their addresses on the occasion of the official opening of the event which will take place on Tuesday, 18 May 2021, starting at 12:00:

H.E. Stevo Pendarovski, President of the Republic of North Macedonia;

Dr. Hans-Gert Poettering, Former President of the European Parliament / Representative for European Affairs, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung e.V. Berlin;

Dr. Werner Fasslabend, Chairman of the Academic Council, Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies and former Austrian Minister of Defence;

H.E. Anke Holstein, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to North Macedonia;

H.E. Kate Marie Byrnes, Ambassador of the United States of America to North Macedonia;

Prof. Marjan Gjurovski, Vice-Rector of the St. Kliment Ohridski University of Bitola.
