International Relations Committee
Oral evidence concluded; report in preparation.
Since the end of the conflicts of the 1990s, the Balkans has remained a region of instability on the borders of the EU. To date, most of the UK's policy towards the region has been tied up with the EU's. As the UK approaches Brexit, there is an opportunity to consider the importance of the region to the UK and to reassess British engagement. The Committee's inquiry will consider how the geopolitical situation in the region is evolving and what challenges need to be addressed, their consequences for the UK and what Government policy ought to be in response.
The deadline for submissions has now passed; if you still wish to make a submission please contact the clerk.
