Slovenia/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation
3.4.5 Cross-border intercultural dialogue and co-operation
Historic and geographical links put Balkans in the center of this topic while cross-boarder co-operation in general could be understood as an approach to the realisation of the Common Slovene Cultural Area where collaboration with Slovenes in neighbouring countries represents the main vehicle in building cross-border tights.
In the last years following activities concerning the participation in ICD related international or EU programmes can be identified:
- Inauguration of the Centre for European Perspective (CEP), an independent, non-profit organisation working on issues of peace, security and multicultural understanding, focusing particularly on the Western Balkans and its EU perspective.
- Participation in Nurope - Nomadic University for Art, Philosophy and Enterprise in Europe with organisation of the third phase in September 2007 in Ljubljana;
- CROMO: three-year project of Slovenia, Italy and Austria with the aim of intensive rising of awareness of interculturality in secondary schools in border areas; and
- There is no comprehensive strategy but only support for different individual national initiatives for ICD policies such as Europe Lost and Found, Nomadska plesna akademija / Nomadic Dance Academy, Skupaj / Together and Sarajevski zvezki / Sarajevo notebook.
