Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

 

This article examines the current dymamics of the EU enlargement process towards the Western Balkan countries.

With the exception of Croatia, that will become an official EU member state in 2013, all the other Western Balkan countries still face significant political, economic, administrative and diplomatic problems, and are not ready to join the EU. On the other hand, EU’s enlargement fatigue and the current economic crisis have further complicated the situation.
