Serbia has one unique situation – Prime Minister Ana Brnabić has a child with her partner, but members of the LGBT+ community still cannot get married. Also, Serbia cannot enable its LGBT+ citizens to regulate the partnership, while recognizing same-sex marriages when it comes to foreign diplomats. So, in this episode we talked with Filip Vulović about the position of the LGBT+ community in Serbia (but also in WB region).
Filip Vulović works in the National Youth Council of Serbia (KOMS) and he is trying to improve the position of young people. Also, he worked at Pride Info Center where he was working on raising the visibility of the LGBT+ community.
We talked about legislative framework and adoption of the Law on Same-Sex Unions, discrimination and problems of the LGBT+ community, as well as about the privileged position of Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.
On the first full day of the new administration in Washington and the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden, we talk about foreign policy with a political science student from Columbia University.
The world is currently expecting great changes in US policy abroad. It is expected that the country will be more present on the world stage and in the international institutions, which were greatly abandoned during Trump’s term in office.
The world is also watching how things between China and the USA will evolve, and how will Joe Biden approach the rising power of China. Did Covid – 19 decisively influence this relation, or would have these tensions happen nevertheless?
Will relations with Russia show signs of improvement or will Biden’s plan to deal with Russia’s influence in Europe, help it deteriorate even more?
We hope that your questions about US foreign policy get answered in this episode, but if not, you are welcomed to send us a message via our social media and we will be pleased to answer them.
