Ideas on Democracy in the Western Balkans

December 13, 2023

Forum 2000 Foundation's new publication focuses on some of the key aspects related to democracy in the Western Balkans: from EU integration to disinformation and the role of youth in democratization processes and conflict resolution. Authors of this work who are from the Western Balkans contributed with their views from the inside, while V4 authors provided their insights from the geographically and historically close outside.

Inspired by Francis Fukuyama’s statement at the 26th Forum 2000 Conference in Prague that the Western Balkans “is an area that could blow up in a nasty way in the future”, Forum 2000 Foundation (Czech Republic), MEMO98 (Slovakia), Political Capital (Hungary), Res Publica Foundation (Poland) and YIHR (Serbia) decided to work with different stakeholders to put together this policy brief "Ideas on Democracy in the Western Balkans". This work was done with the support by the International Visegrad Fund
