After a tour of the large amphitheater of the “Ibn Sina” Institute, lunch was held for the guests, who exchanged opinions on the current political situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region. Those present were introduced to the activities of the Centre for Balkan Studies and other activities of the Institute.
In the second part of the visit, the attendees continued socializing in the Institute’s small amphitheater, which also houses a library with a collection of over 7,000 different publications. During the conversation that followed, journalist Sanadin Voloder described to the audience his experiences that he gained during his visit to Iran last month, organized by the “Ibn Sina” Institute. Voloder pointed out that his perception of Iran after the visit is significantly different compared to the earlier images he acquired through false information in the media. Among those present were several other individuals who visited Iran in the previous period, and who agree with the observations presented by Voloder.
These and similar activities demonstrate the commitment of the Centre for Balkan Studies to bring together prominent journalists, researchers and intellectuals, who, through their public involvement, strive to be a corrective to the socio-political everyday life in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
