It is a regional project oriented on raising public awareness about and support for the Euro-Atlantic integration of Montenegro (further MNE) and Serbia (further SRB), based on sharing experience and best practices of Visegrad countries with transformation and integration. In MNE this goal will be achieved through organizing public discussions in regions of the country – so called „Speaking Tours“. Project will actively strive to raise the public support for the country’s NATO membership in the run-up to the country’s evaluation at the end of this year. In Serbia project’s main goal will be raising public awareness about the level of cooperation between Serbia and NATO. This goal will be achieved through organizing workshops with carefully selected representatives of target groups. The project will also support public activities of the NATO Contact Point Embassy in Serbia, which is actually the Slovak Embassy in Belgrade (2013 -16).
The project will be implemented from September 2015 – November 2016
