A New European Project on a Democratic and European Future of the Western Balkans
The next few years will be decisive for the democratic and European future of the Western Balkans. In addition to a credible enlargement perspective and a positive enlargement narrative, which needs to be reinvented and reinvigorated, it is vital to support the rule of law, civil dialogue, pluralism and the fight against corruption as well as the social dimension. It is crucial to invest more in social inclusion, to support the broad vision of just and democratic societies, which needs to include various bottom-up initiatives and actors. The WB2EU network will activate connect/research/disseminate and create joint output on the defined topics by bringing together academia, civil society and relevant stakeholders on national, regional and EU levels.
The project partners have prepared their first joint statement on the described issues: WB2EU statement.
The project is funded through the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Networks scheme.
