26th to 28th September 2013

The conference “Croatian Membership in the EU – Implications for the Western Balkans”, which was held from 26th to 28th September 2013, was jointly organized by the Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO), Directorate for Security Policy at the Austrian Ministry of Defence and Sports, the Austrian National Defence Academy and the PfP Consortium of Defence Academies and Securities Studies Institutes. Given the fact that Croatia became full-fledged member of the EU in July 2013, the conference was organized with the aim to try to detect the consequences of Croatian accession to the EU on political and economic life in Croatia, Western Balkans countries and the EU itself. Furthermore, conference also gave us the opportunity to hear the perception of the ongoing trends by major foreign actors that have recognizable influence on the developments in South East Europe.
