Following the Languages and Nationalisms project, which tackled the uneasy reality of the existence of four political languages in the region where actually one and only (albeit unnamed) common language is spoken, as well as its major outcome − the Declaration on the Common Language, crafted by 30 linguists and other experts and signed by ca. 10,000 people from all over the region of the Western Balkans − Association KROKODIL has launched  the project entitled Who Started all This? – Historians against Revisionism. Closing event of this project entiteld Why History? Will be held on April 24-25 at KROKODIL's Center for Contemporary Literature and Center for Cultural Decontamination.

The main goal of this project is to create a space for historical and intercultural dialogue by creating a network of historians, writers, journalists, students and wider public which would eventually contribute to the conflict resolution, mutually respected historical narratives (if shared are not possible) and to more inclusive culture of remembrance. The project’s activities will result in the creation of a sustainable platform that would allow mutually acceptable interpretation of events of the recent and more distant past through the method of multi-perspective historical narrative. The final conference will bring together leading historians experts from Serbia and the region, including Dr. Dubravka Stojanović, Dr. Božo Repe, Dr. Husnija Kamberović, Dr. Milivoj Bešlin, Dr. Tvrtko Jakovina, Dr. Peter Mikša, Dr Hrvoje Klasić, Adnan Prekić and many others. This project is supported by the European Union and will be implemented in close cooperation with the ZFD Serbia Forum.
