Event Description

Croatia currently holds the EU Council Presidency. Among the main priorities set for the next six months, there is the promotion of the well-being and stability of its immediate neighbourhood in Southeast Europe. That is also why Croatia has made the Western Balkans Summit in Zagreb in May a priority of its presidency.
20 years after the 1st EU-Western Balkan Summit (then EU15), the Western Balkans are still struggling with political instability, weak institutions and corruption. Despite the prospect of accession for all Western Balkan countries explicitly stated at the 2003 summit in Thessaloniki, only Slovenia and Croatia have joined the EU so far. 
What results can be expected from the Zagreb Summit and what impact could they have on the region? What prompted countries like France or the Netherlands to refuse the beginning of accession negotiations with Albania and North Macedonia?
