This session was conducted by a well-known figure of journalism and political analyst part of many panels in various discussions with social and political background, Mr. Mentor Kikia.
In this lecture the focus was to discuss about politics, democracy, accountability and what we can do as citizens of this country to have the best possibilities for a normal life and healthy communities.
To understand what involvement in politics means, a context was given for what politics means. Dealing with politics is about volunteering. And political engagement itself is an inclusion of volunteerism and we have to start from this when we think about politics and why in reality it does not always happen that way.
We stopped at another very important chapter of democracy which is accountability. Accountability is the key to the guarantee of having a power in the service of the citizens. And by holding them accountable and holding accountable those actors who must be at the service of the people, we can achieve a positive change in society. We talked about how there is no good governance without active citizens, and how important it is to learn, seek and know that we can and should have claims to improve the quality of life of citizens in our country.
Being such a broad and tangible topic in everyday life the young people part of the debate teams were quite active with questions, and enthusiastic to discuss further and share their critical opinion.
