The Potomac Institute's International Center for Terrorism Studies hosted a seminar on March 1, 2018 entitled, "Balkan Security Challenges: Past Lessons and Future Outlook". The Balkans remain vulnerable to several security concerns, including organized crime, terrorism, the refugee crisis, political turmoil as well as social and economic instability. The purpose of this seminar was to present an updated assessment of the current and future security challenges and to offer response strategies from within and without the region.

Professor Yonah Alexander (Director, Inter-University Center for Terrorism Studies and Senior Fellow, Potomac Institute for Policy Studies) moderated the discussion. The panel included Ambassador Floreta Faber (Embassy of Albania), Ambassador Vlora Citaku (Embassy of Kosovo), Ambassador Stanislav Vidovic (Embassy of Slovenia), Ambassador Nebojsa N. Kaluderovic (Embassy of Montenegro), Richard Prosen (Office of European Security Political, and Military Affairs (EUR/RPM), U.S. Department of State), and Professor Don Wallace (Chairman, International Law Institute).
