The second day three lecturers involved with participants on different approaches to Srebrenica genocide: Ivan Jovanović, from UNDP Serbia, tackled the legal aspect, Marko Milosavljević, YIHR Serbia, tried to explain the attitude of the state and society in Serbia toward Srebrenica genocide. The day ended with a constructive and emotional conversation with Jasna Đuričić, leading actress in the movie “Quo, Vadis Aida?”, Academy Award nominee in 2021. 

Last day of the training was all about conspiracy theories and girl power.
