This project Youth activism in the Balkans was funded by the strategic themes of Utrecht University Dynamics of Youth and Pathways to Sustainability through the seed money call Youth as agent of sustainable change. The researchers involved in the project were Dr. Bianca Szytniewski (PI) and Prof. dr. Ajay Bailey (dep. Human Geography and Spatial Planning), Dr. David Henig and Dr. Deana Jovanović (dep. Cultural Anthropology), Armela Xhaho (Institute for Democracy and Mediation, Albania), and Dr. Mimosa Dushi (dep. Geography, University of Pristina, Kosovo). A special thank you to our contacts at the youth organisations in Albania, Bosnia i Hercegovina, Kosovo and Serbia, and the local researchers: Marko Barisic in Bosnia-Hercegovina and Marija Jeremijić Jocić in Serbia.
