Montenegro cannot be a disturbance factor in the region

After three decades, the citizens of Montenegro voted out the Democratic Party of Socialists in the elections, headed by the current president Milo Đukanović. Apparently, the Government will be established by three diverse coalitions "For the Montenegro Future" which includes the predominantly pro-Serbian Democratic Front, the civic "Peace is our nation" led by Democratic Montenegro and the pro-Montenegrin "Black on White" led by the Civic Movement URA. The dominant topic discussed before and after the vote was the controversial Law on Freedom of Religion, due to which tens of thousands of citizens throughout Montenegro have protested in the past six months. Citizens have high expectations from the new Government, and the tense days that happened after 30 August, according to longtime journalist Duško Vuković, will continue only if laws are adopted by which the previous Government will have to prove how they acquired enormous wealth.

Serbia 2020 - a regime in a time of democracy

For years now, Serbia has been shaken by one scandal after another. Despite that, absolute power is in the hands of one man - Aleksandar Vučić. His party won about 62% of the vote in the recent parliamentary elections. That is why living in Serbia in 2020 means living in a regime that is democratic only on paper. Dissatisfaction spilled over into society, and recent demonstrations are a reflection of that. In addition, the country is currently in a health crisis, caused by COVID-19. Actors Svetozar Cvetković and Tihomir Stanić talk about what it is like to be an artist and a citizen of Serbia.

The coronavirus exposed primitiveness and selfishness towards loved ones

KOVID 19 otkri primitivnost i sebicnost kon najbliskite intro

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the strategic commitments of the state in dealing with the crisis was to provide care for the mental health of the population. To that end, psychological support helplines were set up in the Psychiatric Clinic. In an interview with "Res Publica", the director of the clinic, Stojan Bajraktarov, explained that our people are not accustomed to isolation. They are used to closeness and it is normal that the new way of life is difficult for them. He pointed out that in certain groups there is a primitive defense mechanism, i.e. denial of the virus. They do not adhere to the precautionary measures and do not stop to think that they are selfish towards their loved ones. According to him, it is a minority and most citizens disapprove of their own behavior, which instills hope for collective mental health.

The Bilateral Commission is an expert body, not a political tool

Mesovitata komisija e ekspertsko telo a ne politicka alatka naslovna

ResPublika is publishing this interview with the members of the Joint Macedonian-Bulgarian Multidisciplinary Expert Commission on Historical and Educational Issues. The same questions are answered by the associate professor Petar Todorov from the Macedonian side, and Assoc. Naum Kajchev from the Bulgarian side. The two have different views on the course of the work so far, that is, whether or not there is a delay in the work and whether they face pressures. In the interview, they both explain the term "common history", comment the need for historical revisionism after World War II, and their perception of the chance this Commission has to answer the open questions from the past of the two countries. ResPublika conducted this interview in collaboration with the Bulgarian newspaper “Sega”.

What is the cost to the Balkans from the prematurely relaxed COVID-19 measures?

The number of people infected with COVID-19 in all Balkan countries is increasing.

Representatives of the civil society in Macedonia, Serbia, BiH and Albania discuss these issues in the regional Res Publica podcast, as part of the initiative #TalesFromTheRegion.

Зошто богатите градови се бунтуваат

ЏЕФРИ Д. САХС (JEFFREY D. SACHS)

sachs 1330600eБидејќи изгубиле контакт со ставот на јавноста, властите во Париз, Хонгконг и Сантијаго не успеаја да предвидат дека навидум мали измени во политиките (зголемување на данокот на гориво, предлог закон за екстрадиција и повисоки цени за метро, ​​како нови мерки воведени редоследно во наведените земји) ќе предизвика голема социјална експлозија.

Климатските политики на штета на сиромашните

БЈОРН ЛОМБОРГ (BJØRN LOMBORG)

8 image jpg 400x400Постои голема опасност од трошење на оскудните ресурси на светот за климатски политики кои им наштетуваат наместо да им помагаат на најсиромашните луѓе. Наместо тоа, владите треба да се фокусираат на мерки за зајакнување на растот, како што е либерализација на трговијата, кои обезбедуваат пат за поголема благосостојба и еднаквост.

Се води војна со зборови над телата на жените

Катја Ајверсен (Katja Iversen)

BUmXj1ka 200x250Оваа година, Генералното собрание на Обединетите нации ќе одржи состанок на високо ниво, со цел да се потврди заложбата на земјите членки за испорака на универзално здравствено покритие (УЗП), вклучително и заштита од финансиски ризици и пристап до основните здравствени услуги, лекови и вакцини за сите. Прашањето што сè уште не е одговорено е колку земјите се обврзуваат на обезбедување услуги со кои се задоволуваат потребите кои  се единствени за девојчињата и жените, како дел од нивната имплементација на УЗП.

Transferimi i lëndëve nga psp-ja është i pasigurt dhe mundet rdikisht të mos pranohet

Спречување на апокалипса предизвикана од вештачка интелигенција (ВИ) 

Сет Баум 

set baum200x250Скорешниот напредок во вештачката интелигенција во најмала рака може да се рече дека е драстичен. ВИ го трансформира скоро секој сектор од општеството, од превозот, медицината, до одбраната. Затоа вреди да се размисли што ќе се случи кога таа ќе напредне уште повеќе.
