EU-Beitritt - vom "Wann" zum "Ob"?

Die neue Westbalkanpolitik der EU und ihrer Mitgliedsstaaten

EXPERT*INNEN-WORKSHOP

07.09.2020 - 09.09.2020

Thema

Dem Westbalkan mangelt es an Versöhnung. Trotz zahlreicher Bemühungen sind die inner- und zwischengesellschaftlichen Konflikte der Ex-Jugoslawien-Kriege der 90er Jahre nach wie vor virulent. Sie bilden für die Staaten der Region den wichtigsten Bremsklotz für wirtschaftlichen Fortschritt und die angestrebte europäische Integration. Die EU und ihre Mitgliedsstaaten haben Dialog und Versöhnung daher zum Schwerpunkt ihrer Westbalkanstrategie erhoben. Wie kann dies gelingen?

Die Tagung findet in Kooperation mit der Südosteuropa-Gesellschaft (SOG) statt. Ansprechpartner ist: Tobias Flessenkemper
