(Bosnia and Herzegovina)

hatidza-jahicI have a background in international economics. I am based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, but am originally from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I completed my studies in Zagreb, Croatia. I am currently on my Fulbright research grant at the Department of Economics and Department of Educational Reform at the University of Arkansas. My main interests are education, educational policy and education reform.

Why I joined FutureLab Europe? Thanks to FutureLab Europe I was able to meet a great group of young Europeans, with whom I could discuss European integration and the European project in general. FutureLab Europe is a great programme that gives a platform to young people through panel discussions, conferences and gives them the opportunity to express their views through their writing for the FutureLab Europe blog.

Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? I believe Europe needs active citizens because the European project faces very big challenges and the younger generation needs to take a more active role in saving the ideas of peace-building and cooperation, on which the EU was primarily formed.
