Marriage of Convenience or True Love? The EU and Western Balkan candidates for EU membership

Can EU-membership stabilize the countries of the Western Balkan?

Six South Eastern European countries are currently candidates for joining the EU. How great is the love between South Eastern Europe and the EU? By joining the EU, both the Western Balkan countries and the EU hope to achieve greater stability. How important and realistic is this expectation in an EU struggling for direction and Western Balkan nations aspiring to national identity?

The panel will be held in German, English and Serbian.
