Balkans forward congressional fellowship staff delegation to the Balkans

From May 25 to June 1, the Future Europe Initiative hosted a delegation of Congressional staff members on a trip to Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, and Montenegro as part of the Balkans Forward Congressional Fellowship. The delegation met with government officials, opposition party leaders, and civil society actors in each country to discuss domestic, regional, and transatlantic challenges and opportunities. The Balkans Forward trip enhances Congressional staff members’ contextual knowledge and expertise on critical issues in the Western Balkans to better inform future US policy toward the region.
