A Magyarországi Európa Társaság nemzetközi workshopot szervezett 2006. május 17-re, a Nyugat-Balkán politikai helyzetéről és biztonságáról. A Közép-Európai Egyetemen tartott munkamegbeszélésen Horvátországból, Szerbia és Montenegróból, Bosznia-Hercegovinából, Macedóniából, valamint európai intézményektől érkezett szakértők, politikusok, újságírók, civil szervezeti vezetők vitatták meg a magyar résztvevőkkel együtt a térség jövőjének alapvető kérdéseit, különös tekintettel az egyes országok európai uniós csatlakozásának "perspektívájára", illetve a különböző nemzeti és etnikai csoportok békés együttélésének problémájára.
