Jean-Arnault Dérens The Western Balkans and the European Union: an inevitable reconciliation?

Cinémathèque, 24 October, after screening of the film Honeymoons


As Croatia prepares to join the European Union in 2013, the other countries from the Western Balkans are also hoping for a rapid accession to the Union. To this end, they are undertaking the political and economic reforms which are required for their integration. Yet the war in Kosovo and its subsequent independence have left deep scars in the region which threaten to undermine this process. Will the prospect of European integration be a guarantee of peace and regional stability for the various players in this conflict? Will the European Union, itself going through a period of crisis, be able to address the political problems of the region?
Debate chaired by Jean-Arnault Dérens, expert on the Balkans, author of numerous books on the region and co-founder of the Courrier des Balkans in 1998.


Event organised jointly with the Jean Monnet Chair of the University of Luxembourg
