Description: this is one of the leading independent news and analysis groups covering the Balkans today. With a forward-thinking approach that focuses on assessing local situations and trends within a larger regional or global context, we attempt to isolate and define the greater significance of today’s events and trends, and how they will impact on future developments and decision-making in the region and globally.

The audience is richly-varied and includes representatives of the diplomatic corps and non-governmental sectors, the military, security and intelligence services of various states, foreign investors and others in the business world, local and international media bodies concerned with the Balkans, and members of diaspora communities, academia and other research institutions.
