The Regional Cooperation Council is continuing its partnership with the Friends of Europe (FoE) in co-organizing Balkans summit. This year’s summit is named ‘Western Balkans at the crossroads: New challenges, changing dynamics’.
2017’s Balkan Summit will feature the following sessions: Peace in the Balkans means peace in Europe, Business outlook perks up but reforms must continue and Act local: Getting local governments on board. The summit is to seek answers to questions such as: what are the main reasons for the return of nationalism and ethnic tensions in the region; how can Western Balkans be persuaded to look forward instead of at the past, and many more.
The event is expected to gather a number of top Balkans politicians and decision-makers debating ways of further re-energising the region’s myriad connections with the EU.
