How close are the Balkan states to EU membership?

The war in Ukraine has put enlargement back on the European Union’s strategic agenda as it seeks to counter the Russian security threat and guard against further instability. This dynamic has revitalised the long-stalled membership bids of Montenegro, Albania and North Macedonia.

In this webinar we will review our outlook for EU enlargement in the Balkan region and discuss what this means for the economies with the strongest chances of joining the EU.

Topics covered will include:

  • EU Enlargement In The Balkan Region
  • Economic Growth In The Balkans
  • Political Risks In the Balkans
  • Implications of Ukraine-Russia War For Balkans
  • Montenegro, North Macedonia and Albania
