Belgrade´s Social Care Model

Tuesday, 7 May 2013, 6:00pm - 7:30pm, IWM library
Belgrade, ‘the White City’ at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers with a long and varied history, once the proud capital of Tito’s Yugoslavia , more recently damaged by bombings during the war in Kosovo , is a city in transition that faces many new challenges in the 21st century. Social welfare is one of them: not everybody is benefitting from recent developments in this growing and changing city. In the next City Talk, Dragan ?ilas, mayor of Belgrade since 2008, will discuss – together with Karoline Krause, Alexander Van der Bellen and Ivan Krastev – which social measures Serbia’s capital takes in regard to families, elderly people, Roma citizens, as well as health care and the public transport system.
