Life in Kosovo discusses Balkan path to EU integration

Posted on

Tonight, Life in Kosovo broadcasts a debate with journalists from the region, which will discuss the integration of the Western Balkans in the European Union.

What do journalists from Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, and Macedonia say regarding the integration of the Western Balkans in the European Union? Why is Kosovo left out of the visa liberalisation processes? What problems do these countries all face? How do the people of Western Balkans feel about their integration into the EU?


To discuss these and other problems facing the states in the Western Balkans regarding EU integration, journalist Muhamet Hajrullahu has invited the following:


Gjeraqina Tuhina, Brussels correspondent of Radio Television of Kosovo;

Srdjan Kusovac, editor of Pobjeda newspaper in Montenegro;

Ernest Bunguri, Brussels correspondent of Alsat M television in Macedonia;

Dusan Gajic, Brussels correspondent of Radio Television of Serbia and editor of SeeTV in Serbia.


After the debate, BIRN broadcasts a report by journalist Alban Selimi, which reveals the energy theft by many citizens in Kosovo and the courts’ inefficiency in dealing with these cases.


Afterwards, journalist Edona Musa looks at the many problems that schools throughout Kosovo are dealing with.


BIRN ends the show with a report about how the procedural delays with tenders at the University Clinical Centre of Kosovo are seriously endangering children affected by cancer, who are being treated in pediatric oncology ward.
