EU-Western Balkans Summit


This annual Summit is the flagship event of our Balkan Journey, a series of events and articles discussing crucial developments and creative solutions for the Western Balkans with key stakeholders. Bringing together senior decision-makers with out-of-the-box movers and shakers, this Summit allows for an in-depth and innovative discussion on the future of the region and its relations with the EU.

Ahead of the new era that unfolds before Europe’s eyes, the Western Balkans stand out as key actors bound to play a critical role in the security and democracy of the entire continent. Composed of a series of interactive debates, this Summit will address the new challenges, risks and uncertainties the Western Balkans have experienced in 2022, while focusing on practical prospects through a set of policy recommendations.

For each session, we will welcome up to 200 senior stakeholders, who will have the opportunity to engage directly with the speakers, government representatives from the Western Balkans, MEPs, senior officials from international organisations, business and civil society representatives from the region, European Young Leaders and journalists. The Summit will also reach a wider audience with an open livestream, welcoming viewers worldwide that can interact via Twitter.
