: What Next for the Western Balkans?

09 Nov 2021


Speaker: H.E. Tone Kajzer, H.E. Bojan Vujić

Description: After the end of the wars in former Yugoslavia, the European Union and the United States committed to stabilizing the Balkans and providing a pathway for accession to key institutions like the EU and NATO. Yet this process has stalled in recent years, with the Balkans also experiencing greater interference from outside powers including Russia and China. The future enlargement of NATO and the commitment of the US and the EU to the Balkans appear more uncertain than they did 20 years ago. H.E. Tone Kajzer, Slovenia’s ambassador to the United States and H.E. Bojan Vujić, Bosnia's and Herzegovina’s ambassador to the United States, will discuss these subjects and more during a virtual conversation. SIS professor Mirjana Morosini will moderate the discussion, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
