Languages of publication



The Balkans are simultaneously the worst debacle and the largest success of EU foreign policy. The Community, unable to effectively counteract the events of the war in the region in early 90s, undertook, as a priority, to support peace, stability, prosperity and freedom in Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Hercegovina and Macedonia. The governments of all the republics which emerged as a result of the collapse of Yugoslavia are also pursuing full membership of the Community's structures. The authoress sets out to write this short essay in view of her own sympathies toward the region and its inhabitants. It presents the actual situation in the particular states of the West Balkans and the EU's involvement in the process of stabilisation in the region. The Republic of Slovenia was omitted, in view of the country's membership in the EU structures..
