Why Bosnia and Herzegovina wants to join the European Union, and how that process will likely look for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
On Thursday, December 8, 2016, 28 members of Burch Diplomacy Club and seven students from the third year, Department of International Business, along with two professors, visited the Directorate of European Integrations in order to become more acquainted with the Directorate’s role in the European integrations process of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).
At Directorate for European Integration, visitors learned about the history of the European Union (EU), why BiH wants to join the EU, experiences of neighboring states in the accession process, and how that process will likely look for BiH.
On Friday, December 9, 2016, the EU handed the famous Questionnaire with over 3,000 questions to the Prime Minister of BiH, Denis Zvizdić, who tasked the Directorate of European Integrations with answering it, which was of particular interest to the members of Burch Diplomacy Club.
The Directorate’s employees were confident that BiH’s accession process into the EU would last longer than Croatia’s, but would, nonetheless, move relatively quickly. The projected year of entry is 2030.
