The Balkans in an age of renewed great power competition: can the EU still be a stabilising force?


On 9 June, the Club of Three held an online event taking stock of the current state of play in the Balkans. Is this is the end of the road for efforts by the EU to present itself as the main problem-solver in the region? Is there still any hope that it can provide the framework required for them to achieve stability and prosperity?

The discussion was chaired by Milica Delevic of EBRD, with Carl Bildt, Majlinda Bregu and Tim Judah as main speakers.
