Economic policy in the European Union's Eastern and Southern neighborhood is embedded in the frameworks offered by EU's enlargement and neighborhood policies. Under these frameworks, regional development and policy play a significant role, as is evident in the current introduction of the smart specialization approach to regional innovation policy in the Western Balkans, Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova, and Tunisia. Further approaches of regional development relevant to EU enlargement and neighborhood countries include the LEADER/CLLD approach, and building capacities in organizations such as regional development agencies according to experiences made in EU member states represents an important complement for the introduction of policy approaches. In this context, the special issue seeks contributions that deal with aspects of regional analysis, policy approaches, and institutional or organizational questions in EU enlargement or neighborhood countries and their regions.

The EU-supported land swap plan between Serbia and Kosovo would redraw the Serbia-Kosovo partition to allow a Serbian-speaking territory in Kosovo’s north to join Serbia, while an Albanian-speaking region in Serbia’s south would join Kosovo. The stakes are high: Resolving this impasse probably would pave the way for Kosovo to gain a seat at the United Nations. And it would boost the likelihood that both Kosovo and Serbia would join the European Union and, potentially, NATO.
But there are growing concerns over a pact to partition Kosovo. Critics say it would open a “Pandora’s box” in the Balkans, with ethnically divided Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia potential flash points. Even in Albania, which borders Kosovo. What do you think about this issue?
Hello, I'm interested in studies focusing on the potential impact of China's present and future activity in the Western Balkans on the region's territorial governance and territorial development dynamics.
Can anyone suggest recent research/articles on the matter?
Any help appreciated! :)
Kosovar and Serbian officials have suggested a possible solution for solving the major obstacle to integrating the Western Balkans into the EU after the Name Issue of Macedonia, could be a land swap based on where ethnic Serb and Albanian minorities are concentrated — Kosovo's northern Mitrovica region for Serbia's Presevo Valley.
The flag of Kosovo is blue with a yellow geographical map of the country. Should it be changed? Or?
For example, the issue of regional cooperation in the Western Balkan region is a discussions topic that has been the subject of some examinations. The region continues to face numerous challenges: creation of the Development Strategies and to be strongly encouraged to pursue export-promotion and seeks to create growth and jobs , positioning within Europe and beyond.... However, The Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) 2006 hasn't been shown as the driving benchmark to enhance the process of economic transition and economic growth of the region. So my question is why some transition countries prefer to be more export oriented to EU countries rather within the same geographical region.

I came across articles presenting research that used Intercultural sensitivity Index (Olson & Kroeger, 2001), however there are no articles presenting testing of factor structure of the instrument nor how to identify developmental stage of a research participant. If anybody is familiar with such a literature I would be grateful if you could share.
