Monitoring the Berlin Process: From Paris to Trieste
respective agendas. In the last two years, the BBP has issued final conclusions containing a set
of recommendations for the upcoming Berlin process annual summit. The final declaration of the
Paris Summit officialised the already-established synergy between these two political initiatives,
by recognizing its contribution and created dynamics in the improvement of cooperation and
good neighbourly relations in the region.
In May 2016 the regular annual summit of the BBP was held in Sarajevo. It discussed the
implementation of the conclusions adopted at the extraordinary summit, and on the responsibility
of each country to “create a stable political environment that is conducive to economic growth
and overall progress of South East Europe ” 93. In view of the upcoming Berlin process Paris
Summit, the South East European leaders recommended taking concrete actions for the
resolution of outstanding bilateral issues through intensive dialogue and in accordance with
international law.
Overall, the created synergies between the Brdo-Brijuni Process and the Berlin process
contribute to achieve an all-inclusiveness at the highest political level in the WB6 countries,
along with the consolidation of a coherent regional agenda.
CDI has identified 71 regional cooperation platforms and initiatives currently existing in the
WB6. They cover mostly cooperation in economy, security, and environment. They all contribute
- in one way or another – in fostering good neighbourly relations, regional cooperation and
sustainable economic growth in WB6. However, their non-coordination increases the risk of
confusion, loss of information, overlapping, and may induce those multilateral arrangements to
lower efficiency.
Berlin process offers them an umbrella where they can exchange information, agree the
agenda, avoid overlapping, better use available financial resources, etc. This umbrella offers
the advantage of a modular cooperation platform fit to the needs as per sector of cooperation,
strategic importance, geographic area and level of advancement of each country. By offering
this fit-to-purpose overarching governance architecture and under the sine qua non commitment
to the EU integration path, BP can contribute to their efficiency, impact and sustainability.
