IUS Faculty of Law cordially invites you to a public lecture by John Kennedy Mosoti, the United Nations Population Fund / UNFPA Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Country Director for Serbia, Republic of North Macedonia and Director for Kosovo (UNSCR1244).
Topic: A future with the benefit of hindsight: Pathways to a prosperous BiH through the Youth
About the topic: BiH, just like all countries in the region have a past. This past is also present and all indications are such that the past will affect the future. The present is characterized by several challenges; a lingering of the past that directly or indirectly is impacting the populations and the outlook of the future. Young people are usually referred to as the leaders of tomorrow. Stepping in tomorrow will be a day too late. That leadership is needed now.
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is working with partners to support the government to empower young people in BiH and the Western Balkans. We have a focus on working with young people supporting the development of inclusive and consensus based policies/legislation in parallel to building capacities of relevant actors in local communities, all through youth lenses. Penning a new narrative that would birth the transformation of the society and a new BiH order has to led by Young people and inclusively bring the rest on board with them.
