Newsletter Announcement

The new issue of the Atlantic Initiative Newsletter is dedicated to the position of the US policy in the Western Balkans.

In anticipation of the outcome of the US Elections held on 3 November, we examine the legacy of Donald Trump’s presidential term in the Western Balkans, and guidelines of future US foreign policy in this part of Europe.

In the Atlantic Initiative’s editorial, prof. dr Sead Turčalo writes about the “time of uncertainty” and concludes that Bosnia and Herzegovina “should undertake formal and informal activities in order to meet the potentially new policy of international community’s western division, because it will not knock on its door itself, in order to do the job.

Also, our Newsletter provides you with the opportunity to read an interview with Edward P. Joseph, professor of the US University John Hopkins and a renowned foreign policy analyst who speaks about how Trump has lost the Balkans, analyses consequences thereof.

The new Newsletter exclusively brings an article by the Minister of Security of Bosnia and Herzegovina, prof. dr Selmo Cikotić who offers a detailed account of migration management.

Our Srđan Šušnica reflects on the cancellation of a recently announced visit of the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov to Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region, and gives estimates of future policy trends of the official Moscow in this region.

Harun Karčić, PhD, editor and journalist at Al Jazeera Balkans analyses causes and consequences of melting of the “frozen conflict” in Nagorno-Karabakh, and presents potential outcome scenarios in one of the largest hotspots in the world at the moment.
