May 16, 2014 – Sarajevo --The CDRSEE played an important role in a Sarajevo conference, moderating a panel discussion on a provocative analysis of the Balkans, its status, trends and possible development scenarios based on the research findings and policy report of the European Fund for the Balkans.
The panel discussion was entitled “From Euromaidan to Tuzla: Development scenarios for the Balkans in Europe” and included speakers from Cabinet of the President of Republic of Croatia, The German Marshall Fund of the United States, the University of Graz and Democracy for Development. CDRSEE Executive Director Nenad Sebek was the discussion moderator.
The EFB report is called “Balkans in Europe Policy Advisory Group (BiEPAG)” and looked at a number of areas, including where the countries of the Balkans stand in terms of carrying out democratic and economic reforms, how they can cope with growing social dissatisfaction and how to sell further enlargement in the EU member states.

The group’s mission is to be the natural partner for those seeking to strengthen the European philanthropic sector.
