Serbian Ombudsman in Alpbach

One year we received in Alpbach one senior official from Serbia – Mr. Sasa Jankovic, Ombudsman. Together with the chairman of the Austrian Board of Ombudsman, Ms. Gertrude Brinek, he participated in a panel on the role of the Ombudsman in the fight for justice.

“We call on the government to change and to do better whit what they have done. I was elected by the parliament, but the citizens have confidence in me because I am not a politician. This work is in the service of justice, but in a special way, emphasizing human freedom as a supreme value. Justice, in this case, is seen as a moral category. The rule of law is simply not enough. There has to be something more, “Jankovic said.

Following the successful opening in Pristina and in Belgrade, EuroXhibition was shown in Alpbah too. Under the auspices of the European Forum Alpbah and financial support of Erste Foundation, Club Alpbah Belgrade in partnership with the Initiative Group Alpbah Kosovo organized an exhibition of young artists from Belgrade and Pristina on the symbolism of the EU in the local communities. The exhibition showed to a large number of visitors from all over the world the actual perception of young people in the region and their shared vision of the future. After Alpbah, the exhibition will be presented at the European Parliament in Brussels, then in the Austrian parliament in Vienna, and in Zagreb.
