Youth conference on “EU and political branding” with participants from SDA in Bosnia and Herzegovina

March 21 – 23, Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation hosted a conference for active political youth from SDA in cooperation with SDA Academy in Vogošća, Bosnia and Hercegovina. Almost twenty years after the Dayton Agreement, Bosnia and Herzegovina still stands before great challenges of which a deeper integration with the West is one of them.
