Political Trends & Dynamics

By providing regular analysis and commentary on current affairs in Southeast Europe, Dialogue SOE aims to broaden the discourse on peace and stability while countering prevalent securitization narratives. This involves a comprehensive understanding of human security, including structural sources of conflict. more

After more than two decades of engagement in southeastern Europe, the FES recognizes that the challenges and problems still facing this region can best be resolved through a shared regional framework. Our commitment to advancing our core interests in democratic consolidation, social and economic justice and peace through regional cooperation, has since 2015 been strengthened by establishing an infrastructure to coordinate the FES' regional work out of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: the Regional Dialogue Southeast Europe (Dialogue SOE).

more

The FES operates individual country offices across the whole of southeastern Europe. Dialogue Southeast Europe cooperates closely with these offices to advance social democratic initiatives at the domestic and regional levels. For further information on the specific research, advocacy, and policy work of our colleagues, please contact directly our sister offices in Croatia/Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia/Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus.
