Separate ways, common trajectory?

Can the emergence of a new pro-EU government in Serbia be built upon to put Serbia on track for EU membership and for maximising the opportunities of security co-operation through NATO’s Partnership for Peace programme?
Can the Czech Presidency effectively use the window of opportunity after the Serbian parliamentary elections to foster much stronger EU financial support to Serbia and Kosovo in terms of economic development, democratic reforms, and investment?
How can the EU assist Belgrade and Pristina find a common space for dialogue?
