Comment by Nebojša Višković

Champions Don’t Just Disappear

“He can’t come back,” I’m told philosophically by a British fellow journalist, unprovoked, while I peacefully drank my coffee a day before the start of Wimbledon. “Đoković," he continued theatrically. “There are simply too many problems. He won’t reach the semi-finals.”

H.E. Kyle Randolph Scott, Ambassador of USA

Sharing Past & Future

I’m delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to CorD’s publication recognizing the close ties and productive partnership between Serbia and the United States of America. Our two countries share a historical alliance, benefit from today’s productive collaboration, and I look forward to even closer ties in the future

Joseph E. Stiglitz, Project Syndicate

Can the Euro Be Saved?

Across the eurozone, political leaders are entering a state of paralysis: citizens want to remain in the EU, but they also want an end to austerity and the return of prosperity. So long as Germany tells them they can’t have both, there can be only one outcome: more pain, more suffering, more unemployment, and even slower growth

Kemal Dervis, Former Minister of Economic Affairs of Turkey

Toward a More Democratic Europe?

The rise of extreme populism in Europe is coming at the expense of traditional centre-right and centre-left parties and putting the European Union at risk. But the populist threat could induce a restructuring of European politics that ultimately bolsters the EU’s legitimacy

African Art Boom

Modest Yet Impressive

Africa has undergone what the global art world has described as an “art boom” over the last few years. This has led to international interest in contemporary African art, shifting the focus away from naive art and collected ancient artefacts, and has generated enough interest to see the emergence of institutions like Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa

Istorijski spomenici u Francuskoj:

Znamenitosti – obeležja francuske istorije

Sa preko 40.000 zvanično registrovanih znamenitosti, Francuska ima jednu od najgušćih koncentracija istorijskih objekata i ostalih spomenika u Evropi. Od grandioznih palata i katedrala do najmanjih srednjovekovnih kapela, rimskih ostataka ili zaostavština iz vremena Industrijske revolucije – Francuska ima sve. I to samo ako računamo zvanično popisane istorijske znamenitosti

85. godišnjica Francuske ambasade u Beogradu ukras grada

Dok je grupa domaćih turista čekala da uđe u zgradu Francuske ambasade, u Pariskoj ulici u Beogradu duvao je vetar, ali nije bilo toliko hladno kao na koktelu priređenom na tom istom mestu decembra 1935. godine, prilikom svečanog otvaranja ove velelepne zgrade, sazidane dve godine ranije – 1933. Gradske dame tog vremena klizale su se u svojim cipelicama po venčačkom mermeru pridržavajući se za svoje pratioce u prijemnom holu kraj kapije, dok je napolju kiša lila, a pod se ledio stvarajući opasne probleme za gošće u obući sa potpeticama

Bojana Borić Brešković, Director of the National Museum in Belgrade
