Dear RSA members,
As the RSA Ambassador to Serbia, I would like to make RSA closer to Serbian academics that study urban and regional and invite them to explore promotional, publishing and funding opportunities that RSA offers. My goal is to motivate and mobilize local scholars of diverse backgrounds in Serbia to share their knowledge and expand their horizons by networking with the regional study peers worldwide. My particular focus will be on pursuing joint research activities regionally in South East Europe, as well as internationally, to bring together applied research and policy initiatives and to support further subnational development agendas. Please feel free to email me if you need any further information or if you have any ideas for RSA-related opportunities.
Let us try together to promote regional studies in Serbia.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Dr Sanja Kmezic
