Policy Dialogue
After Croatia - Re-energising EU enlargement policy on the Balkans

Monday, 25 November 2013

There is growing concern that, following the "big bang" expansion in 2004, enlargement momentum is slowing. However, the Balkans enlargement drive is re-energising the whole process, with other countries in the accession waiting room "moving forward", heard participants in this Policy Dialogue, organised in cooperation with the European Fund for the Balkans (EFB) and the Centre for Southeast European Studies (CSEES) of the University of Graz, and the benefits of continued EU expansion need to be better explained to a public increasingly suffering from "enlargement fatigue".

Speakers included: Aleksandar A. Pejović, Chief EU Negotiator, Montenegro; Tanja Miščević, Chief EU Negotiator, Serbia; Christian Danielsson, Director-General for Enlargement, European Commission; Christoph Retzlaff, Head of EU Enlargement, neighbourhood and EU external relations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany; Ivan Anton Nimac, Head of Investment Climate Department, World Bank Vienna Office; and Florian Bieber, Professor and Director of the Centre for Southeast European Studies (CSEES) at the University of Graz.
