EU Member State Building in the Western Balkans

Published on by

In this article, Soeren Keil looks at the EU’s more active role in the process of state (and nation) building in the countries of the former Yugoslavia. He argues that the EU’s technical approach to highly political issues has led to misconceptions between the EU and elites in these countries, and has in turn alienated citizens. He lastly offers some ideas as to how the EU might change its approach to enlargement to meet these challenges.

This answer therefore will include both sides of the relationship, and it will concentrate on the EU-Danish relationship.
