Geopolitical challenges in the Balkans in the shadow of the pandemic
We are delighted to be able to present this event as a Zoom webinar.
The panel will be looking at the role of the EU and external actors in the Balkans during the course of the pandemic. More specifically we will be discussing:
1. What kind of influences/interferences/support from EU/China/Russia have we seen across the region since the start of the pandemic?
2. What have been the domestic reactions to competing interventions during the pandemic?
3. Do we see a significant impact emerging out of this competing set of influences? Do we expect things to change in the future and how?
