  • Serbia’s Pursuit of Interests in the EU

    Ready to Grasp Growing Opportunities?

    The interaction between the EU and Serbia is expected to increase in the following phases of the EU accession process. However, the research on how Serbia is pursuing its interests in Brussels is rather scarce and at the same time there is very little policy debate on that issue.

    Serbia has been progressively increasing its engagement with the EU for more than a decade. This has enabled it to
    get itself well acquainted with the work of the EU institutions, the EU laws and the particularities of the EU association/accession process. Having in mind that the interaction between the EU and Serbia is expected to increase in the upcoming phases, this research by the European Policy Centre (CEP) aimed to explore Serbia’s current administrative, financial and lobbying capacities at the EU level in the context of Serbian EU accession negotiation process, in order to acquire a comprehensive understanding of how Serbia is pursuing its interests in Brussels today and whether (and how) it could use experience gained during the previous decade to its advantage.

    This policy brief was published with CEP Study: Serbia’s pursuit of interest in the EU – Administrative, Financial and Lobbying Capacities.
