ESI analyst Adnan Cerimagic participated in the Skopje Youth Summit organised by the Youth Initiative for Human Rights. It took place from 4 to 5 December 2019 in Skopje, North Macedonia.

Adnan was one of the two keynote speakers addressing a group of 150 young people from the Western Balkans at a panel "European model is destined to fail in the Western Balkans." Second keynote speaker was Agon Maliqi, analyst from Pristina.

Adnan based his speech on ESI's research on the EU and the Western Balkans, our ideas regarding measuring and incentivizing reforms in the Western Balkans in light of non-opening of accession talks with Albania and North Macedonia and our most recent proposal for the EU to offer the six Western Balkan states a path towards joining the EU single market (ESI's Norway in the Balkans proposal).
