On 10-11 October 2017, STRATPOL under its banner of “Strategic Dialogues” organised expert roundtables in Sarajevo and Banja Luka dealing with contemporary security challenges and the transformation issues in the Western Balkans. Each of the events consisted of two panels – one in English and one in Bosnian/Serbian language – and they hosted a mixture of Western Balkans’ and Central European experts.
The discussion centred around challenges and opportunities for security cooperation in the region, and regional security policy. The speakers aimed to share the Central European experience corresponding the current Western Balkan needs. The question of EU and NATO policies in the region also provided for a fruitful topic of discussion.
Final report summarising the main talking points, challenges and outcome is available here
