On July 1st, 2013 Croatia became the 28th member state of the European Union and the second ex-Yugoslav state to join the EU after Slovenia. This Roundtable aims at discussing the challenges and opportunities that the European integration offers to Croatia, as well as the latter's role in the reinforcement of the EU's strategic influence on the wider Balkan region. The discussion will be widened to include the perspective of other Western Balkan states, currently in different stages of the EU integration process (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia). Academics, EUI alumni and practitioners from different disciplinary fields and areas of expertise will provide a multi-level analysis of the Balkan road towards European integration and will shed light on alternative aspects of the process, offering insights from a political, economic and legal point of view.

The roundtable will be followed by aperitivo and the theatre performance:
“Kafka project: Frontiere/Granice/Meje/Grens/Borders...” by Karina Holla in the Refectory Room.
(Winner of Best Play and Best Actress 2013 for the National Croatian Theatre)
