European integration of the Western Balkans: Can the Visegrad Group Countries be a Role Model?
European Movement in Serbia (EMinS) is organising a public discussion European integration of the Western Balkans: Can the Visegrad group countries be a role model? The main motive behind this discussion is to present research findings on the experience of Visegrad group countries in the European integrations.
The research is conducted in collaboration with think tanks from Slovakia (The Research Centre of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association), Czech Republic (Institute for European Policy – EUROPEUM), Hungary (The Center for European Enlargement Studies) and Poland (Center for Eastern Studies).
Researchers from the partner organisations will present the decade long experience of Visegrad group countries within the EU, while researchers from EMinS will present an overview on the preparations for the pre – accession negotiations in Serbia over the last 15 years. The introductory presentation and the presentation of the research findings will be followed by the comments and reviews of the academia, civil society and representatives from Serbian state institutions.
Our intention is to present the preliminary research results to the experts and decision-makers, as well as to verify the relevance of the identified practical recommendations and lessons for Serbia and the Western Balkans region. The goal of the recommendations is to make the process of Serbia’s EU accession, and respectively EU enlargement toward this region, as fast and effective as possible, on the basis of the experience of Visegrad group countries.
