The Balkan Focus is a gateway for analysis on the Balkan region and its links with the European Union. It is a space to be up to date on the central issues, political appointments, and status of the accession negotiations to increase the understanding of the enlargement process and keep alive the attention on it.
The strategic role of the Balkans’ integration process now and in the future inspired this project, realised in partnership with a consortium of European think thanks, members of the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS): CeSPI, Fondation Jean Jaurès, Foundation Max van der Stoel (FMS), and Karl-Renner-Institut.
