Western Balkans in the Global (Dis)order: Common Approach to Regional Instability and External Threats

Bringing together highest officials in charge of the Western Balkans from the EU, Germany, Romania and the UK, this panel will look at the main challenges to regional security, including the interplay with external threats (Russian and other third-party malign influences), and explore ways of jointly overcoming them.  The panel will focus on the current state of Serbia-Kosovo relations, the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and on other potential sources of instability in the region. Is a lasting normalisation between Belgrade and Pristina possible in the current atmosphere of high tensions? Will we find a way out of the Bosnian political and institutional impasse? Is Russia posing a serious threat to regional stability, or is it so consumed by the war in Ukraine that it is in fact unable to cause instability on other fronts? All these questions will be the topic of an open and frank discussion between the speakers and an informed public from all over the Western Balkan region and beyond.
