Digital Background Discussion with Edi Rama

Berlin, 28 May 2021

The coronavirus crisis is transforming the international system, challenging European solidarity and multilateral cooperation. Complementary to its series of Political Breakfasts and Background Discussions, Körber-Stiftung’s format of »Digital Background Discussions« aims to facilitate a digital exchange about current challenges for foreign and security policy – including, but not limited to, the consequences of the coronavirus crisis.

The Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania, Edi Rama, spoke about current developments in the Western Balkans as part of the Digital Background Discussion on 7 July 2021. Together with foreign policy decision-makers – including members of the German Bundestag, selected representatives of various ministries and experts from renowned think tanks – Edi Rama discussed current challenges in the region. The importance of strengthening regional cooperation and fostering closer ties with the EU was given great importance in the light of the Berlin Summit 2021. The participants also discussed the role of China in the Western Balkans, possible prospects for the region and the enlargement of the EU. 

The »Digital Background Discussion« Series – Continuing Dialogue in Times of Crisis

Körber-Stiftung regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. In order to continue our discussions in the digital realm, Körber-Stiftung has initiated a new series, the »Digital Background Discussions«, derived from the Political Background Discussions. With this series, Körber-Stiftung aims to facilitate an exchange about current challenges for foreign and security policy – including, but not limited to, the consequences of the Coronavirus crisis. As at the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place in a confidential setting, so as to enable a frank and constructive exchange.
