Abtract: The Berlin Process, launched in 2014, is an initiative aimed at maintaining the momentum of European integration in the Western Balkans. It concentrates in particular on economic connectivity, regional cooperation, civil society development and security (including the imposition of the rule of law, and the fight against corruption and organised crime). This year the UK is hosting the annual Summit. The Slovene Minister, State Secretary Iztok Mirosic, will look at the fragile region of Western Balkans, against the background of wider developments in the EU and the issue of migration, taking into consideration also the impact coming from elsewhere in the world (USA, Russia, Turkey, China).
