The Center for Monitoring and Research (CeMI) successfully held an educational training dedicated to political rights, representation, and political participation of minorities in Montenegro on May 31st at the PR Center in Podgorica.
This training was designed with the intention of providing participants with a deep and comprehensive understanding of the crucial role of political rights and active participation of minority groups in political processes.
In this context, participants had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of multiculturalism and the model of a civic state, as well as analyze the position of Roma and Egyptians both in historical context and within contemporary society.
The lecturers at this training were distinguished experts in the field - Professor Danijela Vuković-Ćalasan from the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Montenegro and Miloš Vukanović, Head of the Public Policy Research Department at CeMI and Assistant Professor at the University of Donja Gorica. Their expertise and experience facilitated fruitful discussions and the exchange of opinions on these relevant topics.
Professor Danijela Vuković-Ćalasan discussed multiculturalism as a model of integration, political rights, representation, and participation of minority peoples and other minority national communities in Montenegro. On the other hand, Miloš Vukanović spoke about the political participation of minorities throughout history as the foundation of Montenegro's civic society.
The training was organized as part of the project "Contribution to the Inclusion of Minorities in the Political Life of Montenegro," implemented by CeMI with the support of the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights.
This education represents one of the key steps in our efforts to empower the democratic process in Montenegro, improve the political participation of minorities, and support an inclusive political framework.
