The overall objective of the course is to investigate from all sides the case study of Dru3bAdria. Dru3bAdria is project of integration of oil pipeline that are passing through six states: Croatia, Russia, Byelorussia, Slovakia, Ukraine and Hungary. This project is connecting 3200 kilometers from Russian town Samara and oil harbor (JANAF terminal) Omi1alj on island Krk

On the one side, the agreement between six states is bringing a good economic integration of the region and has an extreme political and safety meaning for the included countries. On the other hand, many ecological NGOs are fully against the project, led by Bishop’s Conference in Croatia. According to environmental NGO’s reports, project Dru3bAdria can pollute Adriatic sea and jeopardized coasts of Albania, Monte Negro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Italy and Croatia.
At the moment in progress is realization of Study of influence on Adriatic sea.
