Daniel Martínek at the Budapest Balkans Forum 2024

Daniel Martínek attended the Budapest Balkans Forum 2024 as a special guest of the Hungarian Institute of International Affairs which organised the eighth installment of its flagship conference on 12–13 March 2024. The two-day conference featured four high-level public panels and seven expert-level discussions under Chatham House rules. The Budapest Balkans Forum brought more than 100 experts, decision-makers and policy-shapers, as well as several foreign ministers and politicians from across the globe to the capital of Hungary. As the Western Balkans represents a Hungarian foreign policy priority, the Forum revolved around issues related to the region such as energy security, foreign players and their influence in South-Eastern Europe, labour shortage, demographic challenges, or prospects for EU enlargement of the Western Balkan countries.
