The article provides the political and economic outlook for the European Union (EU) countries. It expects that the EU seems to fade its influence as enlargement fatigue and growing domestic problems will constrain the bloc's foreign policy in the region. It also projects that there is a little chance for other countries to pursue the role played by the EU and ensure stability in the Balkans.
