Engaged and enthusiastic is is very encouraging. But also helping them think through issues is also exciting and rewarding knowing full. fully aware that Every one of them has a different set of issues, but you were learning what those issues are is very helpful. Then trying to figure out what your picture is meaning when you roll all of those problems up off the higher level. View of possible solutions for possible problems could emerge or does emerge and and help us thing things off especially for the next election whether we have to talk about Kim tone on Canton all entity or or the country level institutions, but it is exciting. It's also off sometimes you know in in a group of 11 let's say 11 or so candidates. You find a person who is very optimistic. We're in a tough situation says listen people. It's okay. We do what we can there's no money will find some let's do something interesting that they can work with. Where do we need the citizens? What is it that we tell them and what is it that they give them and and and in Bosnia-Herzegovina normal thing is that these parties print a lot of off there along with some pencils on lighters or whatever and that's something that what is cool about it is the people who really like those especially in our lighters and what is interesting is that you get that and then if you smoke and you put it on the table and everybody sees off and that's a commercial For Those ads for the four people who actually looking at I think so because it's I don't know if you're familiar with the phrase swag in the US stuck can't get that's what it is and people love it and that's when it's cool off.

"Most of them do it for the first time to be part of the political process in any sense. Use 67% of our members have never been part of political process members of any party even voted. And so that's a huge change that we see so often needs a lot of support. They don't know the rules of being a candle is hard to do that when you don't have any money or not enough money and in many cases I have to tell you off if they are funding their own campaign and that is another which is unusual for Bosnia and Herzegovina, which we're off the established parties are being funded by the state that various local various levels local federal or the statement. So they get the money from us the taxpayers to run a campaign which would be legal and it might be illegal, but they're doing it anyway. What what we have a case here is the people believe in an idea that enough to to put their own money into it and they are running and competing for the first time really really interesting. I thought we have forced to be Innovative and creative and do a campaign without much resources because as you know, we are being funded by the by the membership fees and loss Galatians. We're doing our best that we give them as much support as we can introduce a lot of good things. Every we since we cannot get to every candidate we we help them organize themselves so that they can they can help each other. Designing these parts videos parts for television and see how much money we have to run them. But for Xbox one one thing one off spot to be able to run into the national TV clearly the difference between running a campaign United States and running a campaign cuz they actually nice huge there is a hard it's really hard to come here, but these elections have their own. Nature character Dynamic and we just adjusting to it fighting with well old machines that I know how to run the game Define the rules of the game, but be encouraged by the reaction of the people in the streets and jobs. I learned in preparation in preparations for this campaign. when these elections As well as meeting people in the streets as we walk. I learn that this the ground game is really the most important issue where you reach every person you shake hands. Explain who you are what you are after you learn more about their problems their issues what what it is that they are dealing with how they cope with this situation where the economies down were pandemic is getting worse again significantly worse. that we are have single that we are learning how important is ground game is. there are some indications that They might tighten these restrictions to gain they are talking about the curfew possibly they are also issuing recommendation and all political parties suspend. campaign events which changes again the dynamic of the campaign where you basically cannot count on Town Hall meetings, which is our strength really am showing people in and talk to us and explained we present candidates which we are you the answer questions. We explain things as we see them. But it is it is what it is. So we will have to adjust as we go. I'm just afraid. I'm just afraid then they might consider this situation. sufficiently serious to seriously start discussing the possibility of postponing relaxes which will then put in doubt my sincerity of the whole thing. Anyway handle it. They were just in the accuracy of the reports of the number of cake because it seems as if It is ordered by somebody to make it so drastic that even considering postponing could be a possibility. But anyway lives of the people are the first priority we need to do everything we can to help the country. Come out of this. tough situation intact or with the least amount of casualties you can't people who They'll make it or those who've experienced some. Tough symptoms and then they have to go to seek medical care. I mean, I'm also reading a lot of people these days people who cannot get to the hospital or to a doctor just.

"Dead within their parties to change that those polling people who who know only one way how to play politics and say you've seen from history of what that way can actually do to Country like Yugoslavia then in Bosnia-Herzegovina, no, So anyway, I I recall with fondness that event. just because it is something that I was hoping at the very beginning of the campaign my campaigning 2018 that such things would actually happen when people would start making up its I'm thinking about people in the country rather than themselves trying to use the system as opposed to who gave to the system and just one final one and it's looking down the road a little bit but do you feel it? I'm guessing it is incumbent upon you when the results come in about measuring what is successful or what is not thousand people or you know, it's like okay. We only we won this many we're on top of the world. We didn't do this. I mean, there's going to have to be some dealing with emotions as to what how the thing is measured when it plays out. Yeah, well I have I had one experience from 2018 when we did extremely extremely young people and realistically expected that it's possible to win at that point. I thinking it's going to be a later on would be different story home. So I had to go back after the television interview to support yourself and basically home. Cheer them even though you were I was not invited shift for good at that point. So this time I'm by you feel like you're prepared for anything to celebrate or to say this and given the circumstances. We did our best of it so we could put it down many things. Now. We know that we need to change to differently start planning earlier build this infrastructure. Let's get to work with whatever happens. Beautiful result or or not so much. In either case you just have to keep going into better next time and keep learning so there will be no. No time for excessive celebration or sorrow no matter what happens. You basically just note it down. So this is what happened. How can this help us? Do better next time and just keep going. It's It is good. It's excellent. I'm really grateful that there is an idea that people embraced in there ready to run with them. And I think that is the key. We have to believe that it's possible and these Journeys going to be long I filled but it is going to be very rewarding. I know that the end will be rewarding if everything happens the way we wanted but even this journey, but it's uncertain even though we believe fully but it's uncertain given the immensity of the forces against us. By the one that is still computer for Germany. So I talked about that. That's an exciting time. I mean it's to see what this next how this next chapter of the journey plays out here in the next month or so, but it's it's fascinating..

Travel to Bosnia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen? Let's talk about Bosnia. I like to welcome to the show. Canaan Charter, which who is coming from Bosnia and his coming to us from highlander adventures dot, be and has come to talk to us about Bosnia Herzegovina. Canaan welcome to the show. Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

"Won't be I- politicized to for political parties in power to use for their benefit. All will be forgotten. I do think that it's going to be gradual. Some stores will be open again. Principles will be still saying. Only two people in the store and three people who store maintain this two yards three yards wherever. Keep your mask on. Keep your gloves on for awhile. And then it's going to be relaxed and and so it may be a while for all of those to go away but some kind of Hesitation will probably remain among the people to say. Well be careful. Be careful then. There will be new year's eve when everybody dances together. The people start hugging and shaking hands and kissing So I think it's just gonNA take a while but at some point it will say. Oh what the heck. I don't WanNa leave my life like this and you're going to go back to social to normal too old social. But once we made any new epidemics is going to be much easier to reestablish the rule and bring the masks back on this the first time this society actually use masks. We were making fun of Chinese Lizard Tours tourists will come to Bosnia tune in sometimes put maskell because the weather the air was so crappy and they have. They're smart can protecting their lunches but will was and so. I think it's going to be easier to be ready for the next day. The new so it's normal to me Moore. In the sense of how fast they will go back to this stage to this settle behavior. Was it happens again. There won't be for another. Not Corrado. There will be something else and I think they'll be normal in terms of response to the crisis but until some behavioral people are social animals. Fever will try to find the reason to to be away from other people too long. But it's always going to be in the beker whereby online. It is going to be interesting to see what it will do I we will. We will look at expenses much more carefully now for travel in meetings for this clearly demonstrated that is possible. It's doable and the online platforms have advanced tremendously in the infrastructure Telecommunications Infrastructure Will BE IT. Leaves much better in will get better and better in the sense that these actually happen. Something will be more responsible when it comes to this money. This means that the money will be More plentiful in it to be used for other reasons and I don't expect that in terms of set of moral values that we're going to do much better other expect any in crooks will be crooks one set of illuminated this time or as they have been in the past times says they will be future times so. I'm afraid that short opportunities great where few places will actually maximize opportunity to do with Brenner? Most will take place and take a little bit of it and they'll go back to business as usual I think it's going to be for him. Added it's going to be another wasted chills to right the ship and in terms of your the platforms response to the proposals for the economic policy. I mean are you still crafting some messages or responses to that to address that? Well we we aired some. It'll be published. Some our our expertise for finance treasury came up with several recommendations basically agree with With a set of the government's government proposed by me wanting to add to the few things that Small businesses suggested I. Well they think so. I agree that the government should take responsibility for those businesses who have suffered because of the government actions and that's what the government for you. Tell them he cannot. Work will make sure they have substance to to survive in so they they don't have to lay off people and you can actually get back to work as quickly as possible However those are temporary measures and We are talking in the. We are talking. We have been talking about the need for long longer term. Planning we also asked for of for the For the government and public sector to rethink their salary structures That they should actually take drastic. Capped to cut because the private sector took drastic capped in in in in their salaries because of the actions of the government We also saying to representatives at all levels though government directors in gouty boards in in in utilities publicly owned companies should take a huge payer and basically that money. Because it's from the state coffers covers from state budget that money should be used for both fighting. Macaroni virus equipping the medical institutions. Better the whole healthcare system to be able to deal with this problem as well as for the improved Package for the helper to industry and whenever they came up with it should be just a is this the first step that should be second third and so on step so basically be trying to make sure. The government is responsible in an act of the act responsibly. Any responsive fashion but so far hasn't been encouraging in just one linesman just in terms of the general mood within the platform the members in dealing with corona virus in general but still having to focus on there may be elections coming up in the fall. Everyone's still upbeat. I assume. People UPBEAT In terms of the day especially now. They're seeing that things are happening. You know with Moore of US working sort of full-time this seeing more things happening. Is that that. Some problems are being addressed and solved so that gives them a greater level of inspection. We are unhappy with the number of people who have volunteered to be on the list for various seats at various levels so government We are surprised us because we short space the level of enthusiasm a number of people who are with us that the plenty of those who will say to me to of light to help but people are of people to try to figure out the reasons one it could be that we set. The high are really really stalk of the morally upstanding capable person educated person as so People is saying well. Maybe I'm not good enough and other reason is there lot of events in our culture very few people say. Meet me to everybody's waiting to be asked so it doesn't look like you're pushing your Salvia. Lv elway you wait toward the front most of the time. It is It's like modesty sometimes fake mother steep but still Somebody should recommend each. It should be there. Are Those who owns. It shouldn't be me. At a commending myself putting my name into the into the mix the There are those who are afraid afraid of other parties that comes with new parties. Nobody knows strength would be able to do anything when people woke for US and they WANNA be publicly labelled as oh those are the ones who are running the the carrying the flag or platform so visibly being a member is one thing right. Being being a candidate on behalf of platform is a different thing in basically labeled so there are those who raised in there are always those who believe that they should only Stand behind something once. It is a winning position. So you volt for a vote for you when you so we'll see it's human resource group Comedian Commission. Whatever works really hard to find people were NBA.

No the budget completely so it can say listen. I think we should set aside this much to bill. Those calves those facilities four refugees moving out of cities but in the save sheltered areas where they will. Accuracy could wait for the decision whether they will be allowed to proceed to Germany. Which is where they want to go Some the only really needs to take care of those people and protect your citizens said the same too. So it's all about money in you don't really know how much spending anything could be spended way. So we haven't publicly made any statements. We just hoping that Saddam is pressure from this new Leif. Refugees coming from Turkey will somehow made people be aware of the enormity of the task and the challenge that it takes really reasonable all the efforts of one cudgel the resources to so but also willingness to contributes to solving the problem rugged just protecting your own interest. I have refused this Florida. I'm refusing to make any statement just because I would like to know the budgets. How the big money Before I could say I think we should stake. This allowed aside bill those scams camps for the refugees where they can actually have a decent life and make sure we don't affect that eats other cities said the same time negatively because we will that money from one pocket to another but there is so much corruption in this country vents. It is hard to believe the could joust somehow get the thing under control.

There will be enough money to help refugees in help our citizens at the same time. We're wasting time. We have frustrating go citizens. We have frustrating refugees. Nobody's happy with US attrition. Nobody's doing much to really address.

Both nationalists voiced participating Nestle's interests and they have actually been working on their own solution and this has been happening for for ten more than ten years.

When those two nationalist parties get together though we also promoting the heavily electronically the importance of Mostar and the situation resolution of the situation in Mostar has the key elements of the resolution on the situation in Bosnia. To new even in our situation these via simply divided there are there are forces the trying to pull it apart as far as they can hoping that it will reach a breaking point so it has to be declared. The of the Central Electoral Committee has to declare Alexis in all was the instigator including Mostar.

So we're GonNa see what will actually happen. So ultimately it can't the final decision can't come from the local municipality in essence. I mean they can be supportive of it. But it's still got to be approved from above in order to do the voting as you recommend in recommending or the holding the actual election Central Electoral Commission is the body that actually declares elections and is responsible for the veracity clearly cletus of those elections in the past star defied the co Ford elections by claiming.

'cause we've talked about it a couple of times about the meeting that you did have in most are and what what was presented. You said it was received well but Questions those types of things. But what was the proposal that you brought forth What we proposed was this. Most star is normally divided into six rangers in the Saban's is the central parts. The Old Town and people basically votes within their region parts of Mostar. So they can upload for anybody. It'd be a talk about the City Council there are thirty five members and twenty three or so a normally selected from these vilified areas almost at the end of the cleanse. So you either warning for one or the other. And they're twelve so would come from one list then. Everybody can move. The central parts did not have its representation. They did not pick their representatives. They could only participate in this the remainder of seats and try to compete to the city though so we actually made a recommendation to give them one seeds to the central piece so that they are not really left behind in terms of being represented in the city council. They'll need also said not. Everybody will have equal number of seats. Older regions have treat each bunch. They have the more populous regions. Parts of the city would have greater level a number of larger number of representatives in the finally basically said though you cannot vote should people only from one. Can One region Kim vote for representatives from the trees? Salau managed to make it so that anybody vote can vote for any so even Zola. Taylor Saad is leaving living in the center city it can vote for. Cross representative from the northwest part. Because I'm interested. These people will will govern all of Mostar not just their little barbs all of us and I want to make sure that all of them represent a swell and I would like to choose not to put my vote for my represented for my because it's more important that I have a good representative there and the only reason for that is that all the autism should try to appeal to all citizens so must start not just to their ethnically cleansed hearts hoping the dental bring great to level of integration of interest among the people of US start. Now I haven't heard any your comments. Negative comments people who wear their actually said that they liked it.

I was so it also showed that also Yutian could be a blueprint for addressing similar situations throughout the country. Most is important because it's still diverse. City Davis not ethnically cleansed. That's what all Baden incidents should be. They have been historically a very mixed. We think that's a string safely. Allow people to use this pattern as ten points for the raging relationship in other cities or arranging wave of governance in other cities it could lead toward better Bosnian. There are some lawsuits in stressful within the European Union. That actually were sold in favor of a soul in favor of the plaintiff and basically the charge was that they'd their right to vote and to be elected was severely limited by constitutional bosnia-herzegovina because people Resi juicing buzzing CanNot be a member of president's role cannot be member presents. Somebody who declares himself a Bosnian cannot be a member of the presidential council. Because it's laugh it's saved so set aside only four representatives of Bosnia Serbs in crowds the solution that we introduced for most star. He's addressing that issue as well.

When Mission Imola is important not just from all not just for the region but it has implications for other parts of the world so it's a conflict that should do concern a lot of other countries and we see that manifest itself in the huge commitment <hes> in the force with some fifty five nations being dedicated to make a difference and second part is that is a very challenging mission that has <hes> threats that seldom come to to U._N.? Mission we have I._D.. Threats we have other ESA metric threats that makes it a difficult <hes> operation. It's serious in the sense that <hes> it defects population ocean at the end of the day the mall populations are the victims every day and in particular in the central region. We have a lot of attacks against civilians we see. The <hes> women receive children being attacked <hes> on on different <hes> in different locations and this is an environment that is unacceptable and we will do everything we can to to mitigate these threats. Somebody has described U._N.. Mission in Mali as probably the most dangerous peacekeeping mission in the world. What would you say to that? What is your view on that while I haven't found a comparison but it is <hes> <hes> it is a difficult mission and sadly we have had too many fatalities in the mission the way forward is to stay firm to stay proactive and to adjust to the threat environment and eh be unpredictable with regards to to these <hes> groups on groups that <hes> challenge security we will continue to do so we are determined and we are focused on our mandate? What is the greatest need for you who and the troops in Mali to be able to succeed against this violent forces in the country particularly in the north to make progress at the most important part for the country's a whole <hes> and also to ensure <unk> security is to to make sure that the government extend its authority throughout the country being pressed sent the providing social services including security that will be the best way to bring the country? Ah Back to peace and stability we will be there s a facilitator supporter but the government is too key actress for people who may not have the map of Mali. Can you describe how broad. Road how wide how big the country's because you mention govern presence in many parts is probably lacking describe how large and Iria covered in why that is challenged well. It's a large which country and <hes> it's some fourteen million people in the country comparing it to other countries <hes> in particular juror most of them would be divorced by by the size of the mall moving from Bamako grow up to the north where we have stationed take some three hours of flying and that's not at all at a very north of the country so it's a huge area to cover some parts of debt. Ah Danced in the central region southern part but in the north <hes> there are the people that live there are dispersed small villages and they are spread out throughout this vast area yeah. It's not just the U._N.. Peacekeeping mission that is active in Mali varies also the French counter-terrorism abrasion going on in Mali and we also have the G. Five Sahel joint force how how do you as force commander for the U._N.. Mission combined with all these other elements. Are there too many chiefs too many actors making things complicated how you manage well <hes> at the end of the day we all the have shared the same aspiration and bringing peace and security to molly we have different mandates and we have different reporting chains but on the ground we share this aspirational moving. Living things practically on the ground so I say with great determination that the corporation works very well be meet we discussed we exchange information on a daily basis on different operations. We will have to continue to do this even more in the future but I'm very pleased with a corporation that <hes> that we enjoy and it's a necessity to have different different <hes> missions because we have so different mandates the situation in Libya. A lot of people believe that is what has led down south to the deteriorating situation in Mali. How much is the situation in Mali affected by instability insecurity up north in leader aid? It's difficult to say to what extent but <hes> there is. <hes> correlation what happens in northern Africa Libya impacts <hes> molly as much as impacts the neighboring countries so molly and we will have to continue to monitor development there in order to better understand how security threats toward security will develop in the coming in coming months. If somebody's feeling hopeless thinking that the situation in Molly's just worse how would you as false command. Give them hope to tell them that you can see light at the end of the tunnel. What signs do you see? I see some very promising signs and I would like to emphasize the government's commitment now stepping forward realizing the urgency and the need.

Europe's Balkan dilemma

"Today, we're looking at the Balkans, an area that dominated international attention twenty years ago after the wars in Bosnia and Kossovo. But it slipped from the headlines in recent years. Joining me to discuss the region, and at some certain prospects are the T euro penatta, Ben home, an Fokin correspondent, Valerie Hopkins. Ben the F T this morning described the Balkans as the most volatile region in Europe. Why would he say that? Because historically, it has been a region that has been full tired of by competing power blocks. You know, the ultimate empire the Austro-Hungarian empire the Russian empire and that has left kind of overlapping, national, and ethnic and religious divisions. And we are still living with the legacy of that, and sort of overlaid by an incomplete transition to democracy and the rule of law after communism and. Then probably on top of all of that you have corruption. It's deeply rooted. So Ben before we continue. Let's just define the region. How big is it? And how significant so we're talking about the western Balkans region roughly twenty million people about the population of the Netherlands, but with a really tiny economy, about the size of Slovakia's. And we're talking about Serbia Montenegro Bosnia Herzegovina Albania, north Macedonia, and Kosovo, of course. So it's a pretty small number of people with a pretty small combined GDP. It's not significant, but it's always been a source of instability as we've known for the last century. Valerie, Ben referred to this as a kind of incomplete process and some of the countries in the regions, maybe all of them have hurt. The delta Modeste nation will be joining the EU I'm thinking, particularly of north Macedonian Albanian, but they're finding very hard. Yes. Well, that's true. They've been hoping to join but also the e u has been hoping for them to join I mean for the first time this was articulated in two thousand three in there. I e you some. In Thessaloniki, all of the countries of the western Balkans were promised a credible path to accession we're given unequivocal support from the Member States and one year ago after north miss Adonia and underwent quite comprehensive changes north Macedonia, to its name, and two other reforms and L Bainian committing to a very onerous judicial reform were promised that they would get a green light this year. And as we saw yesterday that decision was punted again, for a couple of months, at least until October and from their point of view, how much of a disastrous. Well, it's quite a big disaster. I mean, enormous Adonia which recently changed its name in order to end a decades long conflict with Greece over their name, which Athens believed implied territorial desire over the Greek region of the same name, the whole public support for the agreement and public support for the government is riding on the guarantees towards progress towards the EU that are written into that. So north Macedonia, has moved forward in terms of its NATO membership. Several countries, I think, have already ratified the NATO accession protocol for them. But, you know, the European Union membership is what the public really wants and at a certain point, it may become untenable for the leaders of the country to stay in power if they can't deliver on what was promised them, and that would be a disaster for them. And for Europe. Yeah. Mean Ben you've been pretty critical of the youth decision. What's the argument for saying the eaves being sources that it had a unique? Novo paternity to put these two countries move firmly on the path of judgement. EU rules values and sort of binding them into the EU orbit, we have to remember that sort of enlargement process. If you just put aside the various problems that we've experienced over the is in the grand sweep of history. It's been a remarkable success for the EU it stabilized the region, it's brought prosperity and it's dissolved the division between eastern western Europe and the argument just to recap for those who don't totally recall took the EU from what fifteen countries to now. Twenty eight to twenty eight. Yeah. And so, in argument is probably the most effective European Union foreign policy, and it has helped put countries on the right path, and stabilize democracy and promote reform and promote the rule of law. But perhaps there are now plenty of people in the EU think we've reached the end of that process and the legacy problems from previous enlargements have come back to haunt the EU. Maybe the enlargement the accession process was not rigorous. Enough. And so now there are plenty of people who are having second thoughts about it. Yeah. And I mean just to play devil's advocate, I suppose if you are European politician, you will say, well, sure the future of these countries matters, but as he was saying Elliott's twenty million people in the, you have the rise of populists across Europe and places like France, the Netherlands, Britain's voted for Brexit. And it doesn't appear that accession to countries like, oh, near is popular. So perhaps that wise, not to do it quite possibly. But I mean, I think the calculation has to be how long can you keep these countries on the path to accession without ever actually giving them accession at the end of the day? And that solvency something that the EU has tried with Turkey and it's backfired arguably spectacularly, although you could also blame premise, Erta one, perhaps originally topper one for the kind of backsliding in democracy, and the sort of drift away from the European mainstream, in Turkey, but I mean that is clearly the calculation it would be good for Europe if. If Albany could be put on the path to membership even if it never actually meets the criteria to join fully, and you mentioned Obama. Valerie back from there. Give us a description of where the country is in terms of its economy, and its politics because when I was growing up out, mania was like the most isolated place. It was North Korea Europe. And the idea that it might even be close to joining the paean union in some ways, seems miraculous. Well, indeed, it is. And it's quite far off. But I think, you know, to build on what Ben said many Member States have grown tired of the process and have learned that they need to impose further and further restrictions. We see that many of the countries that have joined in recent decades still have problems with their judicial systems. So we're talking countries like Romania Bulgaria, yes, Hungary. If I may say, so the conditions and the demands that Brussels and the Member States have made on countries, which are hoping to join have actually become much more onerous Albania, my story that I did while I was in Toronto was about the extremely onerous. Writing process that all judges, and prosecutors are being subjected to which has left. The country's supreme court with only two judges. One of them I think is being vetted this week. So it may have only one judge so far, only one judge survived because the two tional court, I believe, has only one judge, which is actually quite stabilizing, on the political. See now as the parliament has moved to impeach the president for calling early elections. And no one in the court can judge on this. I don't wanna get too deep into their politics. But I would like to say to that Albanian has also accepted to host the first FrontEx mission FrontEx being the US Border police agency because during the two thousand fifteen migrant crisis, the EU sort of realized woke up and remembered that actually all of these countries in the Balkan route are inside of Europe that if you have weak states week, police weakens to, to Sion's at that will have consequences for the security and safety of the rest of the block. So there should be more interest in improving those institutions and the best way to do it all. Of the academic work that's been done in the Balkans shows that the carrot of enlargement, and of a real credible accession path is the best way to inspire reforms, but how is the economy doing? And how connected is opening to the rest of Europe, now compared to those days of isolation. I mean silly, anecdote but, you know, I come across our Bainian in London now buildings around the corner. So to some extent, they seem to have been integrated little bit. Well, absolutely. I mean, quite a significant portion of Albanians left the country in the nineties jobs, better opportunities. And I think it's rare to meet now lenient who doesn't speak at least two or three languages. But now, people are coming back business ties between mania and especially Italy, Switzerland UK are very strong and the economy's growing, I think actually in the Balkans. The economies are growing much faster than the EU average about four five percent. They still have a long way to go to catch up, but there's quite a lot of vitality and what about this issue of organized crime, which is thrown at all the countries in the Balkans. But I think particularly. Albania for those sitting in Brussels or elsewhere, saying, do we really want country in that condition inside the EU, how serious is the problem? Well, it is a serious problem. And it you know, it also goes to show that again you can't separate the Balkans. Even with the Albania or north as Donio, anyone not being inside of the EU criminals will always find a way to engage in their activity. It seems to me in some of my discussions with police dodges prosecutors that sometimes this threat is overblown. For instance, the Dutch parliament, several weeks ago passed a Bill asking their government to withdraw visa-free travel for all Baynes, dude organised crime. And then when you go and inject a Dutch officials, they say actually, this is not necessarily for violent crime. A lot of people are trying to get on both. Maybe they're trying to come to the UK but actually they're not necessarily being arrested for trafficking in drugs, or persons Ben turning to the other country. We were talking about north Macedonia that I suppose, makes the point that this is also still an issue. To some extent, war and peace. I mean they had extremely tense relations with Greece for sometime. Yes. They have done over the dispute over the name after the collapse of the former Yugoslavia. And that, of course, has prevented Macedonia, north Macedonia is now 'cause integration into the Atlantic community, the NATO. So I mean, it really was a huge that Ford when Zorn's Iovan Alexis, it press the Greek premier achieve this deal, and it still highly contentious in Greece. And we have a general election next month in Greece, where you are likely to see the return of a center, right? New democracy led government and new democracy has been very, very critical of the naming deal with north Macedonia. It remains to be seen whether they will actually go as far as to block their entry, but I suspect Athens will be a lot less accommodating in the future than it has been over the last couple of years. And if I recall correctly at the time, there was some evidence, which the Cyprus government acted on the Russian espionage Intel. Emergence agencies trying to stoke up opposition to the north Macedonia settlement does that raise. Also, I suppose a subsidiary issue, but crucial one which affects Europe's judgment, which is that to the extent that this area is not integrated with the rest of the EU becomes the sort of floating space. And there is no evidence that not just the Russians but also the Turks and even the Chinese are taking an interest in the western Balkans. Absolutely. I suspect it's possible to maybe overplay, the extent of Russian influence, although it has been substantial an acute in some places such as the authentic your and Montenegro and this attempt to stoke up resistance to the referendum on the name changed Illinois with Macedonia, which the Greeks are pro Russian country, actually expelled him Russian diplomats accusing the spine. The Turks are obviously increasingly involved in Bosnia to governor, and Albanian in Kosova, and the. Please spot an opportunity to extend their influence through commerce and through infrastructure spending. So, yeah, we're replaying centuries of history where this region has been kind of plaything for the great powers. And of course, I suppose it's easier for Europe to ignore to the extent that these above Ling cute problems, but lots of problems as long as it doesn't actually break out into violence. Now I mentioned at the beginning of the program that the broad or can region. We were at war twenty years ago is there danger of the old conference coming bubbling back. Or is it more that we're talking about serious, but subsidiary issues of people flows economic crises organized crime, and so on, is there danger of real all while I think you'd be foolish to rule out the danger of a return to conflict in this area in the sense that forty years ago, you might have done the same thing but history has shown how quickly this place can erupt into. James, and I suspect that remains although I'm sure it has reduced in the last ten twenty years, and there is more at stake for the region's inhabitants. If they have a clear path to e membership, which will bring guarantees of security, and better economic prospects. And the end of the day, I have the firm feeling that it's often corrupt politicians who have their own economic interests at heart, who are perpetuating the kind of ethnic divisions in this region. More than popular convictions. And Valerie euro correspondent on the ground. So how stable or unstable does it seem to you? Well, I do agree with Ben that seemingly innocuous crisis can escalate. And I think that in most of the countries, you really do have this kind of boiling, the frog situation where I is correspondent struggle with sometimes seemingly small jumps in a story, actually could carry larger consequences later. But I think rather than conflict, the major risk is just that the country will empty out with people losing hope. That they will be able to create a better life for their children and grandchildren. For instance, in Bosnia, which is a population of three and a half million in the last three or four years. I think two hundred thousand people left since January some thirty thousand people have already left the country. And that's when I talked to people, it's really a matter of losing hope that they will join the European Union and have a better life. So these countries will suffer catastrophic demographic decline. And western Europe will find if they didn't integrate them, they'll show up on the doorsteps. Well, many of them, actually are getting jobs in western Europe, which are empty, you know, these are educated workers doctors dentists health worker, social workers, so it's not the same as migrant crisis. Most of them are going legally with work permits, but they're leaving their home countries for good. Okay. We'll, we'll have to leave it. Thank you very much indeed, to buttery Hopkins in the studio and to Ben holes. Well that's it for this week until next week. Goodbye.
