History teachers lectures

On 24 October 2020, the Mechanism Information Programme for Affected Communities (MIP) held an online workshop for 30 high school history teachers from Serbia.

This was the eighth in a series of MIP workshops and focused on how history teachers can best include judicially established facts in educational material related to the conflicts of 1990s in the former Yugoslavia.

The MIP workshops are implemented in cooperation with the European Association of History Teachers (EUROCLIO) and associations of history teachers from the countries of the former Yugoslavia.

The aim of the MIP is to improve the knowledge and understanding of citizens and communities in the countries of the former Yugoslavia about the crimes committed during the conflicts of the 1990s, based on ICTY and Mechanism cases. The MIP is generously supported by the European Union and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
