https://seldi.net/publications/geopolitics-state-capture-and-peak-corruption-what-is-next-for-anticorruption-in-the-western-balkans/

The last session of the day examines the state of #democracy and #media freedom in the Western Balkans.
Watch live 👉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2DJxbg3Evs&list=UUu95IUgPVeUKNMevRt1D6DQ

What are the lessons learned from past and ongoing judicial reforms in #SEE, and how improvement in the #judiciary independence and efficiency could decrease the state capture phenomenon?

Find out from our second thematic discussion 👉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2DJxbg3Evs&list=UUu95IUgPVeUKNMevRt1D6DQ

#Illicit financial flows strip the countries of #SEE from the resources necessary for their economic progress while facilitating corruption, terrorism, human trafficking and foreign influence.

Watch the panel 👉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2DJxbg3Evs&list=UUu95IUgPVeUKNMevRt1D6DQ

Due to its transformative power, the #EU is one of the most important foreign actors in the #WesternBalkans. However, that power has been reduced because of the enlargement impasse in previous years - @s_majstorovic at @SELDI_Network regional forum.
