ALDA as coordinator of the France-Balkans Multilateral Decentralized Cooperation Program participates in the initiative of AFCCRE and the city of Dijon in the organization of the international meeting France-Balkans which will take place on 16 and 17 March 2018 in Dijon.

***

This meeting is intended for elected officials and local leaders from France and various countries of the Western Balkans, as well as for association leaders and young people involved in exchanges and cooperation in these different countries.

In a geopolitical context where the stability of the Western Balkans is still fragile, the question of their European perspective is back at the forefront of current events, as evidenced by the “European Strategy for the Western Balkans” recently adopted by the European Commission.

This international meeting will focus on the European future of the Western Balkans. The objective is to identify, while putting local and regional authorities at the forefront, the challenges related to the European integration process of the Balkan countries. It will also aim to highlight the actions and projects carried out or planned within the framework of exchanges and partnerships between France and the Balkans in areas such as culture, citizenship, solidarity, without forgetting the economic cooperation linked to the development and attractiveness of the territories.

Through specific events, particular importance will also be given to the participation and involvement of young people in exchanges and cooperation between France and the Balkans.

For more information on this meeting you can consult the program of the meeting below as well as a registration form if you are interested in participating in this meeting.

The France-Balkans Multilateral Decentralized Cooperation Program is supported by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and its Delegation for the External Action of Local Authorities (DAECT).
