Centar za evroatlantske studije (CEAS) iz Beograda, jedan od najistaknutijih think tenkova sa Zapadnog Balkana bi želeo da vas zamoli za malu, neprojektnu, jednokratnu pomoć ili institucionalnu podršku, ličnu ili organizacijsku, kako bi premostili tranzicioni period sa kojim se trenutno suočavamo. Vaša podrška bi nam pomogla da premostimo neke donatorske politike, prepreke, prekomponovanje i povlačenje donatora sa Zapadnog Balkana, koje su nas teško pogodile uprkos našoj besprekornoj saradnji sa njima, kao i ozbiljne posledice pandemije Covid-19, na našu održivost.

CEAS Correction:

In the first version of the document posted on our website, Bulgaria was mistakenly noted as an EU member state which did not recognize Kosovo’s independence.

During the editing process of the text omission occurred and one half sentence was missing in the first version of the document (at the page six).

Current version of the PDF document, attached below is the one with corrected text. CEAS apologizes for these oversights.


Five Principles for U.S. Special Envoy to Guide Peace Talks Between Kosovo and Serbia

The U.S. has sacrificed significant blood and treasure since the 1990s to ensure that the Balkans remain peaceful and stable—and should have a say in any major development in the region. This is why the appointment of U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as U.S. Special Envoy for peace talks between Kosovo and Serbia is an important move. In order to be successful, Ambassador Grenell must be mindful that nothing in the Balkans is easy or straightforward, tinkering with borders is a bad idea, working with European countries in the region increases the likelihood of success, and that the U.S. should be patient with Kosovo and remain conscious that Serbia is Russia’s foothold in the Balkans.
