The Balkans in Europe
Containment or Transformation?
This paper explores the dilemmas facing the EU in the Balkan region. It suggests several ideas that could guide not only future action by the EU, but also by the countries in the region and other institutions. The paper identifies several areas in which EU policies vis-à-vis the Balkans are a potential source of confusion and inconsistency and outlines potential strategies and approaches to correct these.
