Mission
2
Why «FORUM»?
Serbian-German relations in the past have been substantial and
often complex. Always depended on the date of the political and
social situation in Serbia and Germany, oscillating from a variety of
valuables and intertwining of the two cultures to misunderstandings,
conflicts and wars.
Today there is almost no relationship between two countries in
Europe which is so filled with conflicting interpretations.

Citizens
Germany vs Serbia
5
• Serbia appears for Germans as territory with quality and capacity
in the European cultural area, nourishing and emphasizing its
otherness: Byzantine heritage and proximity of oriental cultural
matrices and systems
Society
• Serbian cultural duality and ambiguity, althought attractive for
Germans, are incomprehensible, with a tendency to see in Serbia
an unreliable and unstable future EU member
Mutual
understanding
• Communication took place primarily in the political arena: creation of
political stability and rehabilitation of the ex-YU war consequences
• Priority topics: stability and establishment of wider support for Serbia's
EU accession
Communications
Why «FORUM»?
Serbs and Germans are a bit familiar,
although considered to be very close to each
other because they are history several times
fatefully merged
Future ties between two nations will
depend to a large extent on whether countries
will be able to remove mutual
misunderstandings in favor of understanding
its cultural, economic and national
characteristics
