No boundaries, no exclusion - 3rd chapter
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,
Sport and games have been one of the most common tools for sharing and learning universal rules such as fair play, team spirit, mutual respect and representation of a country in a positive way. Balkan countries such as Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro have been successful in many team and individual sports. But taking into consideration a turbulent recent past in the Balkans, sport events and competitions influenced extreme supporters and hooligans to express violent behavior toward the opponent team supporters causing material damage and physical injuries, and at the same time sending very negative picture about reconciliation in the Balkans.
