KAS DEMOCRACY LAB 2020: „Focus Balkan“ Digital Georgia vom 20. bis 22. Juli 2020

Who will achieve the desired status of an official EU accession candidate? This was the central question for the participants of the seminar “Focus Balkan Digital 2020 - 2nd international Edition” 20 to 22 July 2020.

A multinational group of young students and professionals connected to the Zoom conference room from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Italy, Moldova, Ukraine and even USA experienced three days filled with entertaining debates, inspirational speeches, exciting negotiations and thrilling decisions. The seminar centered around a highly interactive digital simulation game, in which everybody either played the role of an EU decision maker or of a delegate of an accession-willing country. In their feedback, participants highlighted how well organized, interesting and fun the event was. Yet the seminar would not have been nearly as successful and enjoyable if it was not for the dedicated, active and enthusiastic group! The event was conducted by a German-Austrian team of the Civic Institute for International Education on behalf of Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s South Caucasus office in Tbilisi.
