Editor’s Note: Russia appears to be trying to undermine U.S. influence throughout Europe—and, unfortunately, Moscow appears to be succeeding. Although most eyes are on Ukraine and the Baltic states, the Balkans represent another potential flash point. Emily Holland of Columbia University and Rebecca Lissner of the Council on Foreign Relations argue that the Trump administration and the West in general have ignored the Balkans and call for the EU and the United States to step up aid and do much more in this region to avoid another crisis in Europe.
Emily Holland is an Associate Research Scholar at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University. Beginning in Fall 2017, she will be a Fellow at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University.
