      Faculty of Political Science, University of Belgrade and the Centre for the
      Study of Democracy, University of Westminster organise annual
      INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL FOR DEMOCRACY in Hotel Palma, Tivat, Bay of
      Kotor, Montenegro, FR Yugoslavia from 24th August till 7th Septemeber 2002.
      The topic of the School is CONSOLIDATION OF NEW DEMOCRACIES.

      The Background of the Idea

      The School is organised by the Faculty of Political Science of the
      University of Belgrade and the University of Westminster, in collaboration
      with the Anglo-Yugoslav Society. This is an annual summer
      school that has been organised since 1998.
      The group of professors from the Faculty of Political Science (FPS),
      University of Belgrade led by Prof. Vukasin Pavlovic, and The Centre for
      the Study of Democracy, University of Westminster, London (CSD), led by
      Prof. John Keane, have established International Summer School for
      Democracy, which is going to be organised every year. It was originally
      named Yugoslav-British Summer School for Democracy but was later re-named
      to International Summer School for Democracy.
      This School has been established after several years of successful academic
      co-operation between scholars from CSD and FPS. Results of the joint
      research project THE SUPPRESSED CIVIL SOCIETY (during 1994 and 1995), as
      well as joint meetings on CIVIL SOCIETY, WAR AND PEACE (London, February
      1996), and UNIVERSITY, SOCIETY AND DEMOCRACY (Budva, March 1997) have
      proved that there are interests, willingness and capacities for joint
      efforts, to improve and develop co-operation in teaching and research
      processes in the field of political science with the special stress on
      problems of democracy and political and social changes. The International
      Summer School for Democracy is going to be one of the possible and very
      important forms of this co-operation.
      The 1998 course was: DEMOCRACY AND SOCIAL CHANGE,
      The 1999 course was: MODERNITY AND THE STATE ­ EAST, WEST
      (CIVIL SOCIETY AND GOOD GOVERNANCE),
      The 2000 course was: DEMOCRATIC RECONSTRUCTION OF SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE,
      The 2001 course was: GOOD GOVERNANCE - GLOBALISM AND LOCALISM,
      The 2002 course is: CONSOLIDATION OF NEW DEMOCRACIES
