On 20 and 21 May in Belgrade, Serbia, the regional network of civil society organizations and experts for monitoring the Berlin Process – SEE Think Net held a workshop and strategic planning coordinated by the Institute for Democracy “Societas Civilis” (IDSCS).

During the workshop that took place on May 20 (Monday), network members discussed the policy paper “The future of the Berlin Process”, which is a product of a joint effort of all the members of the network. On the second day, May 21 (Tuesday), network members held strategic planning where the future development of the network was discussed.

This meeting is part of the project “Towards a sustainable regional cooperation: Berlin process and beyond”, supported by the European Fund for the Balkans.

The SEE Think Net Network was established in mid-march 2018 with the support of the European Fund for the Balkans as the first regional network composed of civil society organisations that aim to monitor the topics related to the Berlin Process. The Network encompasses think tanks, civil society organisations and individuals from the 6 Western Balkan countries plus Croatia and Slovenia.

Institute for Democracy “Societas Civilis” (IDSCS) is coordinator of the Network and her members include the Network of the European Movement in Serbia (NEMinS), Open Society Foundation Albania, EU Policy Hub, Adnan Ćerimagić from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Politikon Network from Montenegro, Kosovo Centre for Security Studies, the Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO) from Croatia and the Centre for European Perspective (CEP) from Slovenia.

The goal of the SEE Think Net Network is to produce significant policy inputs and provide policy recommendations on topics that derive from the Berlin Process. As such, its activities are devised in order to closely monitor the Berlin process and the policy areas the process encompasses.
