European Integration of the Balkan countries and role of women

30 years after the fall of communism, the Balkan countries continue to remain outside the EU. Despite of the proclaimed political will towards European integration, the countries have failed to uphold standards of democracy, rule of law and good governance.

The challenges of the Balkan societies in their integration efforts will be the scope of a general discussion between women active in politics, media and civil society from the Balkan countries.

The discussion took place on Friday, 21 September 2018 in Tirana hosted by Albanian Democratic Party Women Forum with the generous support of the Konrad Adenauer and Hanns Seidel foundations.
