The conference will address the implications of Brexit, and of potential pressure elsewhere in the EU to repatriate powers from Brussels, for the political and economic environment of the Balkans, with a particular focus on central bank objectives and its policies. Will the departure of the UK affect the attractiveness of EU membership for Central & Eastern Europe and the Balkans? How European finance, and financial flows to the Balkans might, be affected by the changing status of London in the EU’s financial map? What are the immediate economic and financial system implications of the uncertain Brexit phenomenon for the Eurozone, and for Balkan countries (both in and out of the Eurozone)? How will these challenges affect the task of central bankers in the region and their potential policy responses?
