* confirmed attendance


Preparations for the conference "In Search of Truth and Responsibility - Towards A Democratic Future" began late last year. The conference itself is not in any way related to the establishment of the Yugoslav Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Some fifty experts from around the world and the Balkans region are on the list of guests. Unfortunately many of those invited have reluctantly had to decline due to prior engagements.

Another particularly grave problem is that for a large number of those invited from southern Serbia and Kosovo, their memories of the crimes committed in Kosovo are too painful and their dissatisfaction over the province's unresolved political status too great for them to come to Belgrade.

However, the organisers are convinced that the importance of the conference far outweighs the political outlook and personal motives of participants. At issue is the process of facing the past, which must be initiated sooner or later. We must get to grips with this problem as soon as possible in order to leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Kosovo, still a fresh wound, will certainly be one issue to be discussed and confronted by those who want to go on living in the region.
