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.

EUWEB’s Final Ceremony (28 July 2022) was a delightful event, being not only the occasion to bestow a well deserved certificate to the participants of the Module enrolled in our third and conclusive edition, but being also the proving grounds for some of our students, who did an excellent job with their presentations.

EUWEB, especially in the person of its leader, Prof. Teresa Russo, wishes to deeply thank our Partner Institutions, Albanian University and EPOKA University for their warm welcome and hospitality in Tirana! In fact, the Module took part in a series of events in the Albanian Capital on 14-15 June, with a focus on the showcase of the results of three years of work, as well as on planning the future along with our Partners from the Western Balkans.
During its staying, the Module’s Staff really felt like home, being guest on 14 June of the Albanian University of Tirana, which convened the Workshop ‘EU-Western Balkans Cooperations – Thinking of New Possibilities for Development’ revolving on the presentation of the outcomes/outputs and on what the future holds for EUWEB.
The day after, on 15 June, EPOKA University hosted the International Conference ‘Key Elements for the Future of EUWEB Observatory’s Research’, divided into an enlightening Roundtable – meant as a think-tank for our future activities – and in the subsequent Open Forum, where the presentations of the speakers were spaced out with a remarkable open debate.
In conclusion, many thanks go – from the bottom of our heart – to everyone who made all of this possible! Thank you, Tirana!
