The Balkans Today: How Russia, Turkey, Extremism, And Social, Economic and Political Fragility
Continue To Shape The Western Balkans
In addition to the poisonous legacies of war and inter-ethnic bitterness, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Kosovo also share the burdens of social and economic dislocations, corruption, and fragile institutions of democracy. Russia, Turkey, and the European Union are all competing for influence in the western Balkans, where Islamist extremism also seeks to build its presence.
RFE/RL Balkan Service Director Arbana Vidishiqi will share her insights into these issues and their impact on the countries of the Western Balkan region.
