Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.
Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges.

The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center is delighted to invite you to a conversation with President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić. This event will take place on Thursday, April 22, 2021, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. (ET) / 15:00 hrs – 16:00 hrs (CEST).
Serbia is a central actor in the future of the Western Balkans and a Europe whole, free and at peace. The country is emerging from the pandemic with rapid vaccination rates, active vaccine diplomacy in the region, and ambitious plans for economic recovery. At the same time, the candidate country for European Union (EU) membership continues to face political and geopolitical headwinds at home and abroad.
President Vučić will join the Council for a conversation about Serbia’s domestic agenda amid the pandemic as well as the country’s regional and foreign policy priorities. The conversation will address the outlook for US-Serbia relations under a new US administration, what role the United States and EU can play working together to advance a Euro-Atlantic perspective for the Western Balkans, how Serbia can work with its neighbors to promote post-pandemic recovery through regional economic cooperation, as well as the Belgrade-Priština Dialogue, domestic political developments, and geopolitical influences in the region. This discussion is part of the Europe Center’s #BalkansForward Initiative, a coordinated effort to foster a democratic, secure, and prosperous Western Balkans firmly integrated into the Euro-Atlantic community.
The Europe Center is pleased to present this live event as part of the Atlantic Council’s #ACFrontPage event series, our premier ideas platform spotlighting global leaders and championing constructive solutions to global challenges. From publishing timely commentary and analysis across the continent to providing a transatlantic platform for European leaders driving the crisis response, the Europe Center is combining foreign policy, economic, and business expertise to help re-imagine the post COVID-19 world.
This conversation will take place on Zoom and will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. To receive the event information, please register using the button above. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to watch the event.
