The discussion was the last of a series of meetings of the „Strategy Group Russia/Eastern Partnership“, hosted by the DGAP’s Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia. The evening’s key question was what a short- and long-term modus vivendi toward Russia could look like.

The Western Balkans have reached a critical point on their path to EU membership, with serious democratic backsliding in some countries and people’s support for the European Union declining. At the same time, the EU is busy with its own internal problems. With the aim of raising awareness for the current developments in their region and contributing new impulses for the EU enlargement policy, think tank representatives from the Western Balkans presented their research findings in Brussels.
