This week, Talk Eastern Europe heads back to the Western Balkans. Maciek and Adam discuss the most recent EU-Western Balkan Summit which was held in Tirana, Albania on December 6th.
Later, Adam is joined by Leon Hartwell, a senior advisor for the Central and South Eastern European Programme (CSEEP) at LSE IDEAS and a non-resident senior fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA). They discuss the context to current rising tensions between Serbia and Kosovo; what are the barriers to finding a solution; and which actors are involved in trying to resolve (or not) the conflict.
During the bonus round section – available for our Patrons only – Leon discusses the role of the Russian war in Ukraine in the Western Balkan region and why Serbia is so pro-Russian.
