On the 26-27 May, 2022, CEA participated in the 5th Annual Workshop of the TG-WeB – the Western Balkans Network on Territorial Governance on the subject of Pathways towards Cohesion: Challenges, Trends, Gaps and Policy Recommendations on the WB-EU cohesion.

Western Balkan Network on Territorial Governance is established to serve as a platform aimed at bringing forward the research on territorial governance in the Western Balkan (WB) countries bringing together research and policy-influencing forces from the region. In more specific terms, the network will work on undertaking pioneering research and policy advocacy across the region, to enhance the domestic territorial governance and impact in a ‘unique voice’ the EU integration of the WB countries from a TG perspective. In so doing, the network aims to strengthen the WB-EU partnerships at the level of academia, researchers’ community, and civic society for dealing with territorial development in the WB in a combined EU-domestic bottom-up fashion.
