Sanda Rashkovich-Ivich originally graduated from medical school in Zagreb, specialising in psychiatry. After working in the field for a few years, she moved to Belgrade and continued with her education, acquiring a Ph.D in Psychoanalysis at the city's university. Being a specialist in psychiatry, Sanda Rashkovich-Ivich always wanted to help people in different ways. Her father was the leader of the democratic party of Serbs in Croatia, so she decided to follow in his footsteps. In 2003, she joined the party which her father had once headed. Her successful leadership led her to become the Vice President of the Democratic Party of Serbia two years later. Today, Sanda Rashkovich-Ivich heads the Co-ordination Centre on Kosovo and Metokhia. This is her 3rd visit to Moscow and she says that the city changes immensely every time she visits.
As the recent talks between Pristina and Belgrade failed, the question of Kosovo's future status is now being considered by the UN Security Council. Is the international community able to find a solution that will meet the national needs of both Kosovo and Serbia and the geopolitical interests of all international negotiators? What solutions could the UN Security Council possibly come up with? The guest to answer these questions is the President of the Co-ordination Centre on Kosovo and Metokhia Sanda Rashkovich-Ivich.
