THE BERLIN PROCESS AND REGIONAL COOPERATION IN THE WESTERN BALKANS
The Council for Inclusive Governance organized on July 10, 2021, in Tirana, Albania, a roundtable for senior representatives of main political parties from the Western Balkans to discuss the future of the Berlin Process. The participants said that the continuation of the process should be tailored to the new circumstances in the region. Participants familiar with EU policies said the region remains high on the EU agenda, but many Western Balkan representatives were skeptical. The region, however, should show more “willingness and ability” to resolve the many basic bilateral and internal issues before “the EU takes it more seriously.” Below please find the report from the meeting.
