"One of the biggest barriers to successful reconciliation and European integration is language; not just the dialectical differences of Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin but Macedonian, Albanian, Greek, and Hungarian. The issues of minorities will never fully be solved without a neutral language. Over time, the universities of the Balkans should adopt the Dutch model of teaching degrees in English, recognising that a language of limited reach disables global engagement. The benefits of a common language at degree level would allow administration and business to work far more efficiently cross borders. There may be a risk of exacerbating a brain drain, but the outcome of offering a common administrative language would create regional employment and lessen tensions."
