Albania and the Western Balkans: A European Future?

His Excellency Bujar Nishani, President, Republic of Albania

We will live stream this program at 12:20 p.m. CT

Since the 1990s Albania has been strongly engaged in NATO and EU integration, and the country achieved full NATO membership in 2009. Although questions remain about the impact of Brexit on the enlargement process, Albania is set to open negotiations with the EU by the end of the year. In the meantime, what can Albania and other Western Balkan countries expect in the years to come when it comes to integration in the EU and NATO? How is Albania promoting regional peace, democratic stability, religious harmony, and prosperity in the Western Balkan region? Join the Council on Global Affairs and His Excellency Bujar Nishani for a look at Europe’s new realities.
