The Serbian Presidential Election

Dr. James Lyon,
Belgrade-based Senior Balkans Advisor for the International Crisis
Group, joined us for a discussion on the implications of the Serbian
presidential elections. Boris Tadic, Serbia’s pro western incumbent,
won the run-off election in a closely contested race. The election was
widely seen as a bellwether, with the potential to turn the country
back on an isolationist and nationalistic path. Dr Lyon will discuss
what the outcome means for United States policy in the region, and will
also discuss Russian resurgence in the Balkans as well as the recently
signed Russia/Serbia energy agreements.What implications does the
election have for Kosovo? What are Serbia’s prospects for joining the
European Union? What impact might the results have on Serbia’s
cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former
Yugoslavia?
