Our Long-Term Goals

Long-term goals of ADD correspond to SDGs, but also go beyond them and reach even further

Regonal Approach

It has become evident over the decades following the last armed conflict in the region that none of the countries can solve these issues separately, and this is why we are doing something completely different – adopting the regional agenda.

Regonal Solutions to Separate State Problems

feedback-2990424_1920

MODERN

These solutions need to be innovative and new, promoted by new generation of politicians and future leaders.

BRAVE

There is no space for partial solutions, or solutions that would be in line with populism, demagogy or cheap extremism.

DIALOGUE

Solutions need to be result of comprehensive dialogue which will tackle even difficult subjects and issues.

Everyone involved

All the solutions that need to be made have to be product of participation of great number of factors and include all of the stakeholders, rather than result of the agreement of political elites in each of the countries.

Strength

Our strength lies in the fact that we are all active politicians and decision-makers in our countries who can implement policies and solutions that are going to be developed.
