The European Policy Centre co-hosted the presentation of the International Commission's report on the Balkans with its strategic partner, the King Baudouin Foundation. Panellists, including Giuliano Amato, former Italian Prime Minister and Chairman of the International Commission, agreed that the status quo in the Western Balkans was untenable and could drive the region towards a new period of highly dangerous instability. The region as a whole needed to be moved from the 'protectorate stage,' with weak state structures toward EU accession.
