On 2 of July, the EAD launched its newest project focusing on sharing the Polish and Visegrad European integration experience with the Western Balkan countries. Participants of the VSPS Western Balkans Initiative took part in 3 days of meetings and discussions on civil society, security, good governance and combatting corruption, regional cooperation, and priorities of foreign policy. They also spent 2 days attending panels and meetings at the Poznań Western Balkans Summit devoted to strategic priorities, engaging business, building civil society, anti-corruption, building a better environment for better life quality, countering disinformation and threats to democracy.

In October 2019, the participants will meet again in a regional setting during the Belgrade Security Forum. The program will conclude in November with a series of publications on Western Balkans EU integration process.
