Assessing Russian Economic and Political Influence in Southeastern Europe


On 19 February 2019, The Center for the Study of Democracy organised an expert workshop on “Assessing Russian Economic and Political Influence in Southeastern Europe” with participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. Among the discussed topics were the Russian economic presence, the governance deficits exploited by Russian entities to penetrate strategic markets and the role of Russian soft power instruments for amplifying the strategic importance of economic dependencies. The discussion was financed by the National Endowment for Democracy and is part of a year-long study of the Russian economic and political influence in Southeastern Europe.
