Conference on the Future of Europe - A vivid Europe from below - Local authorities in the Western Balkan and their vision of a future Europe

Future of europe


The Conference on the Future of Europe currently debates in a wide-spread participative discourse the future of the EU. Unfortunately, the Western Balkan countries have been not included in the debate on how to shape Europe’s future. Municipalities play a crucial role in implementing the concept of European Integration. Our workshop would like to highlight the role of municipalities in European Integration including EU-Macroregional Strategies, discuss the potential of municipalities in the Western Balkan and open a door to communicate the vision and needs of municipalities of the region for a Europe in the near and mid-future.
