New methodology for EU enlargement presented

The College of the European Commission has adopted a proposal for a new methodology for the accession negotiations today.

“The whole process needs to be more credible, more predictable, more dynamic and more political”, stated the European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Oliver Varhelyi while presenting the Commission’s proposal at a press conference today.


He explained that the purpose of the proposal is to re-establish the credible EU perspective for the Western Balkans.


The highlights of the document include clustering the negotiating chapters in thematic areas, possibility for rewarding the reforms with more funding and phasing-in of candidates to individual policies, but also sanctioning lack of progress by putting the negotiations on hold in certain areas, or in the most serious cases, their overall suspension.


An even stronger focus should be given to the fundamentals, with roadmaps for the rule of law and democratic institutions, the Commission proposes. According to the document, The EU should deliver on its unwavering commitment to a merit-based process, and the political nature of the process should be put front and center with mechanisms such as regular EU-Western Balkans summits, country-specific intergovernmental conferences and more focus on political issues by the Stabilization and Association bodies.


One of the notable proposals is that the public political commitment of their authorities to the strategic goal of EU accession will be assessed more clearly in the annual reports.


According to the Commission, the process needs to be better equipped to deal with structural weaknesses in the countries, in particular in the area of the fundamentals, including rule of law and functioning market economy.


The proposed changes do not automatically include the countries that have already started their accession processes, Serbia and Montenegro. They could, however, be accommodated within the existing frameworks with the agreement of these two countries.
