Clinching Neighbors: Ukraine on the Path into Europe

The proposed project is focusing on addressing two crucial things related to each other – propaganda and extremism. These issues are addressed in its entirety by proving qualitative interactive seminars with researchers, analysts, and civil society leaders dealing with both issues. To add more value to the project, the personnel is dominantly coming from Ukraine and while debating the seminar leaders and their audience have a chance to compare both countries’ efforts to address and tackle crucial issues of today. By addressing these issues in front of young high school students the project aims at closing the knowledge gap and helping to raise a well-informed group of future leaders of Slovakia.
