    Analysis of 2016 Findings and Reporting Effects

    As was the case in previous autumns, the European Commission (EC) held the professional public in the countries of the Western Balkans (WB) in anticipation for the results of its assessment of compliance and progress in the Serbia EU accession process.

    The Commission is changing its reporting schedule and the next report can be expected only in Spring of 2018. The EC explained that by doing so, it will harmonise its actions with the schedule of Economic Reform Programs (ERP) for candidate countries. In this edition of CEP Insight, we analyse the new EC reporting methodology and its novelties, and comment on the findings of the newest Serbia 2016 Country Report.
