On Monday, 19 October 2020, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nemanja Džuverović from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, was a guest lecturer at the Chair and Centre of International Relations at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in celebration of Erasmus days 2020. He prepared two online guest lectures. The first focused on ‘The role of the EU in peacebuilding and statebuilding in the (Western) Balkans’ and was performed for the students in the Master’s programme of European Studies within a course Politics of European Integration. The lecture took a critical theoretical approach to addressing the role and effect of external actors in post-conflict areas, and engaged a 13-student audience in an animated debate especially on the role of EU in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The second lecture took place within the undergraduate programme of International Relations on Wednesday, 21 October 2020, when 20 students, members of the Chair of IR and an alumni of the programme joined the online discussion. In a lecture titled ‘Current Issues in the International Community’, Dr Džuverović presented the recently published scientific research on ‘Reconciliation challenges in the post-Yugoslav area’ that he co-authored and spurred a lively debate on the issue among a highly international student audience.
