Slovak Balkan Public Policy Fund: Collection of Selected Policy Papers

European integration has become an essential aspect on countries’ agendas in the Western Balkans. Individual countries are currently at various stages of negotiation with the European Union. Due to significant differences in levels of reform progress, the EU approaches the subject on an individual basis with each country. As a country with a recent memory of transition to democracy and EU integration, Slovakia is committed to sharing its experience in these processes with others. As a non-governmental organisation with an active interest in democracy and development in the Balkans, the Pontis Foundation established the Slovak Balkan Policy Fund in 2012. This built on the initial work of the pilot project, Slovak Serbian EU Enlargement Fund which began in 2009. It aims to contribute to public and expert discussion about countries’ functioning within the EU atmosphere and reflects the need to foster the capacity of civil society to be a natural partner to government in discussing European integration and public awareness of EU membership issues.

 

Slovak-Serbian EU Enlargement Fund: Collection of Selected Policy Papers

Today Serbia is closer than ever to EU membership. In 2009 the Pontis Foundation established the Slovak-Serbian Enlargement Fund to support young, independent researchers and journalists in their work on topics of the EU agenda in Serbia and their interaction with Slovak counterparts. The involvement of non-state actors in wider discussion about Serbia’s European future is crucial so that citizens of Serbia are aware not just of the advantages, but also the responsibilities connected with EU membership. Slovakia is engaged in sharing its experience of a successful, if initially sluggish, journey to EU membership. The Slovak Serbian EU Enlargement Fund served as a fore-runner to the Slovak Balkan Public Policy Fund, which engaged in similar activities but at a larger scale, covering the Western Balkans.
