Also, we will release the outcomes in our online Journal EUWEB Legal Essays. Global & International Perspectives (Prof. Teresa Russo as Editor-in-Chief), so stay tuned.

We would like to express our gratitude to all of you for making the first concluding conference of this EUVALWEB edition such a fruitful and stimulating scientific event.

Convened by the organizing committee of Profs. Teresa Russo, Marina Matić Bošković, Jelena Kostić, Ivana Bodrožić, and Valentina Ranaldi, the event was meant to serve as a forum for discussion and comparison of the steps taken and yet to be taken to bring the legal systems of the accession states into line with the criteria of EU membership.

We sincerely believe the event met its expectations and achieved all its goals.

On May 30, 2024, the Institute of Criminological and Sociological Research of Belgrade served as a suitable venue for an intense and serious discussion about the possibility of EU enlargement into the Western Balkans.

Great outcomes resulted from the conference proceedings, which were masterfully opened by the welcome speech of H.E. Luca Gotti, the Italian Ambassador to Serbia, as well as from the speeches of the keynote and guest speakers, and young researchers from the academic and professional world, who animated the various sessions of the conference, enriched by the participation of police trainees and representatives of the public and civil society.

Some pictures of the conference day are available at:

We also wish to thank the Institute of Criminological and Sociological Research, the Institute of Comparative Law and the University of Criminal Investigation and Police Studies of Belgrade for their media coverage of the event:




Conclusively, a publication of the conference proceedings is slated for early 2025.
