Dr. Ralf Melzer is heading the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung's regional office Dialogue Southeast Europe in Sarajevo since June 2020. The foundation accompanies the transition and development process in the EU candidate countries Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia in a variety of ways. In its projects, the German foundation works across borders with politicians, representatives of civil society, clubs, associations, unions, the media, etc. In an interview with Peter Scherrer, Dr. Melzer explains how the countries in the Western Balkans cooperate, what political constitution they are in and what the European Union must do to give people in Southeastern Europe a credible perspective.
