Despite being a key factor in maintaining law and order, democracy is often used as an alibi for anarchy and chaos. Are we headed in the right direction? How much do we invest in democracy and in which ways? Why have countries in the region failed the basic democracy tests? How do we restrain the authorities from using excessive power? Is the EU accession process a proven formula or system for learning democracy? Why aren’t civil society organizations and the media the drivers of democracy instead of being an extension of the instruments of power? These are some of the issues discussed by our guest: Tvrtko Jakovina (Croatia), Balša Brković (Montenegro), Enver Kazaz (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Voja Žanetić (Serbia). Writer Renato Bretić (Croatia) gave the opening keynote, while fellows of the European Fund for the Balkans also took part in the discussion about Learning Democracy.
