After three years of the Jean Monnet Module “EU-Western Balkans Cooperation on Justice and Home Affairs” (EUWEB), we felt like something more could and had to happen… and so it did!
Today, it’s with great pleasure and a bit of thrill that we announce that the European Commission selected to co-financing the Jean Monnet Chair “Promoting Public Awareness on Enlargement Policy, EU Values and the Western Balkans’ Accession” (EUVALWEB), under the guide of prof. Teresa Russo as Chair holder.

The Chair is set to focus on the evolution of EU Enlargement policy and its implications in the construction of EU identity, based on its core values (article 2 TEU), as well as on the EU strategy toward the Western Balkans.

Therefore, EUVALWEB serves the purpose of building up awareness, expertise and competency in those who will attend its courses, skills that are critical in the current stage of EU integration process for the erection of a wide community of law based on the respect for democracy and human rights in particular. The more than 90 hours of yearly activities will include group lectures, seminars, training and tutorials, including in a distance format.

The three-years Jean Monnet Chair EUVALWEB is starting from March 2023 and we encourage you all, EU and Non-EU (Western Balkans above all) Citizens, to attend its courses held both online and in presence at the University of Salerno.

EUWEB Leader Teresa Russo was part of the Ninth International Scientific Conference “Social Changes in the Global World”, convened by University ‘Goce Delčev’ of Štip, North Macedonia on 1-2 September 2022.

Included among the panelists of 1 September, Prof. Russo shared with the participants a presentation entitled ‘Some insights concerning the rule of law in EU migration policy’, fostering the debate on the yet unresolved issue of migration management.

The event was also an occasion to meet North Macedonian Partners and extend the cooperation network to colleagues of other Western Balkan Countries . Thanking Profs. Ana Nikodinovska Krstevska, Olga Koshevaliska and Elena Maksimova as well as ‘Goce Delčev’ as a whole for their exquisite welcome and hospitality, EUWEB believes that this high profile two-days conference is another pivotal brick in the bridge of cooperation and friendship.
