Campaign Theme: Youth unemployment Team Members: Naila Elkasović, Ramiz Sijamhodžić, and Hasan Talić Campaign Mediums: Infographic presenting unemployment statistics from Bužim, interviews with unemployed youth from Bužim, Balkan Diskurs articles features youth success stories from BiH Social Media Platform: Facebook
Campaign Overview: Many BiH youth are now leaving the country to seek stable employment and build a new life elsewhere as a result of the country’s staggering youth unemployment rate. For those that remain, unemployment can lead to a number of issues, including feelings of injustice, marginalisation, and disenfranchisement. Such feelings can influence vulnerable citizens, especially youth, to adopt extremist viewpoints and gravitate towards radical ideologies and actions. The #SpiritOfSuccess campaign will feature youth success stories in an effort to inspire hope among BiH’s youth that opportunities for success do, in fact, exist
