Foreign & Security Policy

The Heinrich Böll Foundation Turkey Representation carries out works for contributing to a transparent, democratic and peaceful understanding of foreign policy. It supports projects that aim at enhancing the relations of Turkey with the EU and other regional actors, and incentives that contribute to civil society dialogue. Through conferences, research activities and publications it intends to create the necessary fund of knowledge and discussion platform for making Turkey’s foreign policy more comprehensible, monitorable and moldable by the civil society.

Analysis: Post “Zero Problems with Neighbours” in the Western Balkans - A View from Serbia

As the EU’s focus has shifted away from the region, the situation in the Western Balkans has deteriorated. In addition to Russia and China, the Western press has frequently highlighted Turkey being particularly interested in exerting its influence, which could potentially disrupt the EU’s approach in the region. But how much, in reality, is Turkey willing, ready and able to influence the countries of the Western Balkans? This paper will try to provide a summary of relevant issues regarding Turkey’s position in the Western Balkans as a baseline for discussion at the upcoming November 6th roundtable in Belgrade.
