On 26 September 2016, the European Parliament published on its website a briefing entitled “The Western Balkans and the EU. Enlargement and challenges”. It is explained in the paper that evolving enlargement policy of the EU has “set the bar for accession higher for the current candidate, and potential candidate countries – Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia”. One of the novelties is that a new EU approach brings rule of law to the fore, and as from now the rule of law Chapters 23 and 24 will be opened first in the negotiation process. An argument in favour of this approach is that post-accession monitoring has not proved efficient.
