Nemanja Djokovic, Alumni of the IPS 2014 shares his impressions about the Program: “My main reason for the application for Internationales Parlaments-Stipendium was to get the feeling that I was in the center of democracy and decision-making. It is not just about politics as such, but also about how to create compromises and different solutions based on arguments . And doing all of that with an international team of smart people who came to Berlin from all around the world. Program enables better understanding between nations. My experience was wonderful, and I would like to recommend the program to everyone so we can expand our horizons, friendships and become more open and tolerant society.”
The deadline for application is June 30th.
