Balkan Update, From Belgrade's Security Forum into an Insecure 2017

John Lampe reviews the promising prospects from this past October's Balkan Security Forum that he attended and reconsiders them  in the light of recent events across the region.  

"Democracy's Survival in the New Global Disorder" started with a constructive exchange between the Prime Ministers of Serbia and Albania, the two common themes were keeping regional security grounded in the NATO alliance and pursuing the process of EU accession even if there was no immediate prospect of membership. 

Since then, however, the new year has begun with challenges addressed but  not resolved by  conference sessions.  They range from the Kosovo and refugee issues to media freedom and the pressure on democratic institutions from new or divided governments in the region and the populist currents across Europe.
