MARRI RC Director interview for Wall Street International
At a time when hundreds of thousands of refugees are fleeing war-torn Syria to seek a better life elsewhere, masses of people are flooding borders to reach Europe. This creates challenges for the countries along the way that are providing food, temporary shelter, and meeting basic needs. As these migrants pass through the Balkans with a determination to reach Germany, Austria and Scandinavian countries, cooperation between Balkan leaders has become an essential element in continuing regional stability. Unity among Balkan states, as well as a consensus in regard to strategic matters of security, is a key factor in garnering favor with the European Union – something that the Western Balkans are actively seeking.
