Regional cooperation in the Western Balkans - what next?


Following the accession of Croatia to the European Union in 2013, the contemporaneous structures and mechanisms of regional cooperation in the Western Balkans require adjustments. The future development of regional cooperation is dependent on the dynamics of bilateral and multilateral relations in the Western Balkans, especially the strengthening of existing institutional frameworks and increasing their capability to support regional cooperation. The EU-Western Balkan ministerial conference, held in Thessaloniki on the 8th of May 2014, reaffirmed the European perspective of the Western Balkans, but emphasised regional cooperation and good neighbourly relations as important components requiring improvement, specifically stressing the harmonious development of regional infrastructure.The aforementioned policy paper and accompanying public debate aim to contribute to a better monitoring and greater understanding of the latest trends in multilateral cooperation, relating these to the expectations and requirements of the EU. Additionally the text and event hope to provide relevant policy and decision-makers with the possible and necessary measures to improve policy in this field.
