Cultural Cooperation in Southeastern Europe - Managing Cultural Transitions in Southeastern Europe: The Impact of Creative Industries

Institute for International Relations, Zagreb
Inter-University Center for Post Graduate Studies, Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, 9-15 May 2005


The organizers have decided to merge the two classical forms of work: conference and postgraduate course (the latter having already a five-year tradition). The intention was to invite prominent expert speakers specialized in regional development and to stimulate discussion on issues pertinent to regional cultural development by involving young, interested students as much as possible.
