The debate takes place less than a month after the EU Commission published its annual reports on the Western Balkans recommending the opening of accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania and a week after the General affairs council meeting where the Member States will have discussed the Commission recommendations.
The Western Balkans is the immediate neighbourhood of the EU. Political, social and economic developments in this region have a considerable impact on the union. It is therefore important to continue to work together and maintain engagement and support for the necessary reform processes in the Western Balkan countries. 
The EU perspective is a driver of change in the region and a constructive relationship with the EU will contribute to stability and progress in the Western Balkans. How can we make sure that this relationship remains a priority to the citizens and the governments of the EU as well as in the countries in the region? 
The conference is organised jointly by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the European Commission Representation in Sweden. It will be moderated by Katarina Areskoug Mascarenhas, Head of the EU Commisssion’s Representation in Sweden.
