Forum Invitation: Engage in “Open Seminars” with Prof. Ass. Dr. Ilir Kalemaj

The Institute “Sami Frashëri” in Tirana, in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Studies (CNS) in Sarajevo, enthusiastically invites you to the forthcoming session of our intellectually stimulating platform, “Open Seminars.” Designed as a bi-weekly forum, this initiative is dedicated to cultivating critical perspectives on the pressing challenges that modern society faces.

Join us for a compelling session that aims to spark thoughtful discourse and analysis on significant societal issues. Prof. Ass. Dr. Ilir Kalemaj, a renowned political scientist, will lead our discussion, offering deep insights into current topics of relevance.

Background of the Initiative:

The “Open Seminars” initiative emerges against a backdrop of a pressing need for substantive dialogue within the Albanian public sphere and the broader Balkan region. The public discourse often grapples with a dearth of innovative ideas, overshadowed by partisan rhetoric, journalistic clichés, and oversimplified narratives. This series aspires to address these challenges by providing a forum where critical social, political, economic, and cultural themes can be explored by distinguished experts and scholars, making complex subjects accessible to a broader audience.

Aimed at students, young professionals, and the general public, the seminars are structured to encourage engagement, learning, and the exchange of ideas. By fostering a network of intellectuals and activists and promoting exchanges between Albanian and Bosniak scholars, the “Open Seminars” seek to contribute positively to the region’s intellectual and societal discourse.
