From Thessaloniki to Sofia and Beyond

06/06/2018, Rome

International conference in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) and the European Fund for the Balkans. The conference will engage politicians, journalists, businesspersons, civil society actors and academics in a creative forward-looking exercise on the future of European enlargement towards the Western Balkans.
The expected impact of the event is to advance an understanding of the strategic win-win gains that the EU and the WB6 would get by recommitting to reform and cooperation, as much as of the costs of not doing so, which would fuel nationalist, populist and illiberal discourses in both the EU and the Western Balkans.
