Come accelerare l'adesione di Serbia e Montenegro al Consiglio d'Europa ed all'Unione Europea?

Saranno questi i temi trattati in un convegno organizzato a Belgrado nel prossimo fine settimana tra il 22 ed il 24 novembre. Organizzatori l'Istituto per gli Studi Europei di Belgrado e la Fondazione Konrad Adenauer, sempre di Belgrado. Le giornate saranno densissime di interventi. Tra gli altri ad esempio anche Vojislav Kostunica, Presidente della Repubblica Federale di Jugoslavia, Francois Friedrich, a capo dell'ufficio di Belgrado del Consiglio d'Europa e Joachim Schmidt, ambasciatore della Repubblica Federale Tedesca.
Sarà l'occasione per confrontarsi con temi scottanti che la nuova classe dirigente jugoslava si trova ad affrontare dopo la caduta di Milosevic e la rottura dell'isolamento internazionale. Si partirà con alcune considerazioni su questi ultimi dieci anni di transizioni e tragedie, per poi affrontare tematiche legate all'allargamento europeo, alle riforme economiche e politiche in vista di un'integrazione con gli altri paesi europei e soprattutto si discuterà di come riuscire a stabilizzare e radicare questa giovane democrazia.
