New study by Bertelsmann Stiftung & wiiw evaluates regional economic cooperation in the Western Balkans for two decades

20 years of trying to drive political reconciliation via regional economic integration in the Western Balkans has produced disappointing results. New forms of differentiated integration with the EU provide a more promising route to increase economic development. A more decisive step forward in regional integration and the eventual admission of the six Western Balkan countries into the EU will require Brussels to tackle much more directly the major constitutional and territorial disputes in the region.
