This analysis is a summary of a longer research output of the project “Analysis of hybrid threats in the countries of the Western Balkans: challenges and actors with potential impact on the security of the Slovak Republic”, implemented by Strategic Analysis Think Tank in 2023, with the financial support of the Ministry of Defence of the Slovak Republic.
The team of Strategic Analysis supports ALPHA Centar in implementing the project “Media literacy capacity-building for Western Balkan students tackling spreading mis/disinformation”, supported by the International Visegrad Fund. The project's main objective is to increase the media literacy capacity of the young generation, namely students of various fields from all Western Balkan countries who will tackle biases that threaten democratic cooperation, social cohesion, and reconciliation in the region.
The project will strengthen the economic resilience of the ABL area by increasing local production, building accommodation capacities, and optimizing the area's tourist potential. Also, the project aims to build capacities for young people by providing them with the soft skills necessary for their realization within the community and to motivate them to stay in the target districts and participate more actively in public life instead.
The aim of the project is to prepare an expert analytical study that will serve as a political baseline for a new approach of the Slovak Republic to the region of Western Balkans and (selected countries of) the Eastern Partnership in the context of the new geopolitical challenges and EU enlargement.
