About the Diary

The Europa Diary is a publication that aims to inform about the European Union (EU), its values and opportunities that it offers in the best way possible. For the first time this year, the Diary is available in English.

This is the tenth time that the Europa Diary was published in Serbia. This sort of informative guide can be of use not only to students, but to teachers as well, as a teaching aid.

The Europa Diary covers a wide range of topics - from the creation of the EU and its institutions, through ecology, human and minority rights, single market and currency, to the opportunities for continuing education in one of the EU member states. The most interesting thing for you may be the debunking of the EU myths that exist in the public. A special part dedicated to the relations between Serbia and the EU aims to familiarise students with the EU negotiations and accession processes.

In this textbook you can learn more about travel, studies, student exchange programmes, funds and scholarships, volunteering, language learning and what awaits you once Serbia has become an EU member state, as well as about lives of your peers in other European countries.

You can find answers to all other questions by contacting the EU Info Centre in Belgrade or the EU Info Points in Novi Sad and Nis. The EU Info Network aims to familiarise the citizens of Serbia with the process of Eurointegration and the European Union. The network organises lectures, trainings, forums, debates where the citizens have an opportunity to actively participate in the discussion on the European Union and express their opinions.

The aim of connecting the countries of Europe was not the creation of an exclusive club, closed for new members. Over the years, the European Economic Community (EEC) has grown from a small group of six Western Europe countries to the European Union we have today, and it continues its negotiations with new countries that have expressed the desire to join, including Serbia.

The Europa Diary is once again promoting the contest for students’ works. The contest is open for all high school students who wish to submit their works on the topic of relations between Serbia and the EU or on some of the topics covered in the Europa Diary. The prize for the authors of the best works is a trip throughout Europe so that they can feel firsthand how everyday life looks in the EU. In the meantime you can read the Europa Diary, it might serve you as an inspiration to participate yourself.

The Europa Diary 2019/2020 publication was financed by the Delegation of the EU to Serbia. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia and the Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia supported this project and participated in the preparation of this diary.
