I think the USIP tries to promote democrocacy in
Southeastern Europe, however, the overwhelming majority,
if not all, of its attention and effort is focused on Serbia.
Daniel Serwer, director of the Institute's so-called
Balkans Initiative, appears throughout the recently
telivised PBS documentary titled "Bringing Down a
Dictator," about the movement in Serbia called Otpor that
was inolved in bringing down Milosevic.

As Lord Paddy Ashdown takes over the reins as the High Representative, several questions over Bosniaís future remain:
* What can be done to increase the capacities of the Bosnian people and institutions?
* What efforts can be made to strengthen the rule of law?
* Is Dayton a hindrance to progress?
* Are there political obstacles to economic development?
* How can the High Representative best coordinate with US policy-makers?
The presentation will be followed by questions from the floor.
Please RSVP to Matthew Crane by e-mail at email@example.com. As with all
