Enhancing Regional Cooperation: Monitoring of the Implementation of the Vienna Western Balkans Summit Commitments

The project serves to provide a contribution to the regional policy creation in the context of the Berlin Process, which gathers representative of several EU member states and governments of the Western Balkan countries. Within the auspices of the Berlin Process three summits took place: in Berlin (2014), Vienna (2015), and Paris (2016).

Partner organisations will examine whether and/or to what extent the governments participating in the Berlin Process have managed to put in life the commitments they agreed upon in two declarations adopted at the 2015 Vienna Western Balkans Summit, i.e. the Joint Declaration on the Establishment of the Regional Youth Cooperation Office of the Western Balkans and the Declaration on the Regional Cooperation and the Solution of Bilateral Disputes. The special emphasis will be given to the assessment of the implementation of the commitments in Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR of Macedonia and Serbia. Furthermore, the project will explore the role of the civil society organizations in the Berlin Process.

The outcomes of this project will be:

1) Regional Study on the implementation of the commitments from the two declarations adopted at the 2015 Vienna Western Balkans Summit 2015 (Joint Declaration on the Establishment of the Regional Youth Cooperation Office of the Western Balkans and the Declaration on the Regional Cooperation and the Solution of Bilateral Disputes) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Serbia. This Study was presented at the regional meeting in June 2016.

2) Regional Policy Brief on Implementation of the Commitments from the Berlin Process in the field of regional cooperation and youth. This Policy Brief will be presented in December 2016.
