<nettime> period after


dear friends,

we are currently in the preparation of the launch of the Period After
website. a brief proposal can be found below in english, serbian and
german. consider this as a private invite, not a public mailout.  i would
like to ask you, or invite you to contribute three to ten lines for the
opening of Period After. especially the understanding of 'after' in the
context of contemporary politics might provide an extensive ground for
thought.

it would be great to receive some statements we could use for the 'period
after' column on the Period After site. if you could think of other ways to
contribute, we would be very happy to host your thoughts and work. i do
apologise for the 'bureaucratic' language used in the texts below, but when
dealing with issues of integration we decided to go down the welcoming lane.

looking forward to hear from you,

micz flor

PERIOD AFTER - support now for the period after

Period After is a web based project, focussing on the urgency, the
development and the long term effects of the Balkan crisis, with a main
interest in the potential and real consequences. It will primarily support
and collaborate with independent voices and organisations in the Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia who are momentarily under severe pressure caused by
war activities, rumours, political and media propaganda, shortages,
disintegration of the social and material environment and the humanitarian
catastrophe. Issues of multi-ethnic collaboration and integration are of
the main concern of Period After.

The project will work as an information base, an opinion forum and a
meeting point. Period After will provide moral support, for the sake of the
courage of those independent voices and intends to work for a continuation
of a free flow of independent uncensored information and communication on
all sides, about key political developments and issues of security and
economic development in the context of the democratisation process in any
possible 'period after'. It will identify and mediate social, economic and
political conditions after the war which can cause new dislocations.

Period After applies mostly to the territory of Austria where we would
raise public awareness about the situation faced by refugees among the
Austrian citizens, Serb and Albanian non-refugee communities. This will
mean to work for a reduced likelihood of social tension and increase
dialogue. 

Through public access, freedom of expression and professional information
accessible through new information technology, the Internet, we can help
people in Austria as well as in Yugoslavia to understand the processes and
establish modes of orientation in this movement of culture and political
actions on the Balkan and across Europe. The long term aim is to develop an
informed network with individual opinions, towards the development of an
integrated and tolerant, peaceful Europe.

The website will be in English, German and Serbian in the initial phase.
Albanian translations are currently being seeked.

Period After / Period posle
support now for the period after  /  danas mislimo  na sutra

"Period posle" je zamisljen kao web sajt, posvecen istovremeno aktuelnim
dogadjanja kao i razvoju dugorocnih posledica krize na Balkanu. Pratice
posledice koje je kriza vec izazvala kao i one moguce u buducnosti.

U pitanju je projekat koji ce prvenstveno okupljati one nezavisne glasove
pojedinaca i organizacija u SRJ koje su momentalno pod velikim pritiscima
izazvanim ratnim sukobima, glasinama, politickoj i medijskoj propagandi,
kao i posledicama raspada socijalnog i ekonomskog okruzenja i posledicama
humanitarne katastrofe.
Mogucnosti multi-etnicke saradnje i integracije bice jedan od glavnih
interesa ovog projekta.

Projekat je zamisljen kao baza informacija, slobodan forum za razmenu
misljenja i u tom smislu specificno mesto susretanja. Pokusace da pruzi
moralnu podrsku i ohrabri nezavisne glasove, neometan i slobodan protok
necenzurisanih informacija i komunikacije svih strana u sukobu, posvecujuci
posebnu paznju temama vezanim za politicke procese, pitanja bezbednosti i
ekonomskog razvoja u kontekstu pomoci procesu demokratizacije u "periodu
posle". U okviru projekta pokusacemo da identifikujemo socijalne, ekonomske
i politicke procese koji bi mogli posle rata da budu uzrok novih
dislokacija stanovnistva.
"Period posle" jednim delom se odnosi na teritoriju Austrije gde ce
pokusati u siroj javnosti, medju austrijskim gradjanima, kao i u srpskoj i
albanskoj zajednici u Austriji, da skrene paznju na situaciju izbeglica u
Austriji. Prakticno, to znaci raditi na smanjenju socijalnih tenzija i
pospesenju dijaloga.

Kroz Internet, kao jezik nove tehnologije svakome dostupan bez ogranicenja,
putem slobodno izrazenog misljenja i profesionalne informacije verujemo da
mozemo pomoci ljudima u Austriji kao i u Jugoslaviji da bolje shvate
procese i pronadju sigurnije puteve u kulturnim i politickim pomeranjima
koja se dogadjaju na Balkanu i u Evropi. Dugorocni cilj projekta je
uspostavljanje neformalne mreze za izrazavanje individualnih, slobodnih
razmisljanja i stavova koji mogu pomoci stvaranje integrisane, tolerantnije
i mirne Evrope.

Website ce biti dostupan na engleskom, nemackom i srpskom jeziku. Mogucnost
albanskog prevoda se trenutno razmatra.

PERIOD AFTER
support now for the 'period after'

Period After ist ein Internetprojekt, das sich mit der Entwicklung und den
längerfristigen Effekten der Balkankrise beschäftigt, mit den potentiellen
und realen Konsequenzen. Period After wird mit unabhängigen Stimmen und
Organisationen aus der Bundesrepublik Jugoslawiens kooperieren und
unterstützen, die sich derzeit unter extremen Druck durch
Kriegsaktivitäten, politische und mediale Propaganda, Engpässe,
Disintegration sozialer und materieller Gegebenheiten und der humanitären
Katastrophe befinden. Hauptanliegen von Period After ist ein
multi-ethnisches Umfeld der Kooperation und Integration.

Das Projekt fungiert als Anlaufstelle und Vermittler von Informationen,
dient dem offenen Meinungsaustausch und soll virtueller Treffpunkt werden.
Period After wird für die Courage unabhängiger Stimmen moralische
Unterstützung bieten und mit seinen Mitteln an einer grenzüberschreitenden
Weiterführung unabhängiger und unzensierter Information und Kommunikation
zwischen allen Seiten arbeiten. Das Projekt ist dabei mittel- bis
längerfristig angelegt, mit Hinblick auf die 'period after', die
politischen, ökonomischen und sozialen Entwicklungen innerhalb eines
Demokratisierungsprozesses. Dabei geht es darum Realitäten zu vermitteln,
um neuen Diskontinuitäten entgegenzuwirken.

Period After bezieht sich hauptsächlich auf Österreich, wo es darum geht
die Aufmerksamkeit der Öffentlichkeit auf die Situation von Flüchtlingen zu
lenken und serbische sowie albanische Gruppen, die keinen Flüchtlingsstatus
haben. Das Projekt möchte kommunikativ und informativ möglichen sozialen
Spannungen entgegenwirken und den produktiven Dialog zu fördern.

Durch öffentlichen Zugang zu Medien, Meinungsfreiheit und professionelle
Information die durch neue Kulturtechnologien wie das Internet zugängig
werden, möchte Period After seinen Teil zum Verständnis der lokalen und
trans-europäischen Entwicklung in Österreich und Jugoslawien beitragen. Es
geht darum Orientierungen in den kulturellen und politischen Bewegungen zu
definieren. Längerfristig hoffen wir ein informiertes Netzwerk
individueller Meinungen zu entwickeln, mit dem Blick auf ein tolerantes,
integriertes und friedliches Europa.

Die Netzseite wird in Englisch, Deutsch und Serbisch entwickelt. Albanische
Übersetzungsmöglichkeiten werden momentan gesucht.
