Its most concrete outcome is this Manifesto, a document drawing the contours of a vision from the Western Balkans for the future of Europe.
The Manifesto draws on the participation of two hundred citizens from the Western Balkans in a series of workshops and deliberation work steered in the past two years by a group of 12 experts from the region, with the involvement of a broad spectrum of civil society representatives.
It gathers the aspirations of citizens from the Western Balkans and channels key recommendations on how to shape a forward-looking Europe that looks beyond immediate threats and resolvedly sets its course amidst mushrooming challenges. It also sheds light on Western Balkans’ contribution to the making of a stronger Europe.
We are proud to finally share it with you, you can now download the Manifesto.
We hope that the Manifesto will be timely and relevant to your work. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any comments or feedback.
