Joining the club? Rocky road to EU membership for Western Balkan states

There's currently new wind in the sails of the movement to enlarge the EU into the Western Balkans region (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia). One major recent development has been a name deal for one of those six countries: "North Macedonia", as it's now set to be officially known. Neighbouring Greece had for years been opposed to the use of "Macedonia", the name of one of its own northern regions.

Now the deal is done, what's the state of play on the EU's enlargement into the Western Balkans? And what's the interest for the European Union in taking on new members in a region that was at war less than 30 years ago? We're joined by two MEPs to debate these issues.
