She is the author of articles published at REAL CORP 2018, AESOP 2019, International Conference on Sarajevo in the World 2020, and UN Interfaith Harmony Week 2021. Tabori Pelja translated Sarajevo Haggadah to Bosnian language in 2008 and bears the Role of the Court Interpreter for Hebrew language in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The question is: What needs to be done to bring Bosnia and Herzegovina closer and integrated into the system of modern spatial planning of continental Europe? Whether it is necessary only to follow the European Green Plan for the EU or is it necessary to make systemic changes and adaptations to make the new approach to planning enforceable. What condition is the spatial planning system in? What’s missing in regulatory and operational terms? The transformation of the EU economy for a sustainable future can be an opportunity for Bosnia and Herzegovina to make systemic reforms as part of accession processes to allow integration to be essential and constructive, and to recognise and correct the shortcomings of the legacy system.
