The Young Researchers Club (YRC) was officially launched on 9 October 2014, in Tirana, Albania. Conceptualized as an interactive forum, where participants will interact with peers, policy-makers and other relevant actors and stakeholders on social science research advancement in the country.

It has turned to become a tradition now, the participation and contribution of IDM to the Belgrade Security Forum (BSF). It was the fourth BSF this year, which was held from 30 Sep - 2 Oct and focused mostly on specific security issues emerging from the recent developments in Ukraine and Levant.

This workshop was targeted to local development agencies in Shkodra and Lezha and other local and regional public stakeholders to strengthen their capacities on women economic empowerment and enhancing economic clusters.


With support of Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, IDM organized the Conference on “Regional Cooperation in the Field of Justice and Security” to analyze the present level of cooperation in justice and security between Albania and Serbia, in view of countries’ aspiration to join EU.
