    How are the Balkan countries preparing their policymaking systems for membership?

    High-quality standards in the development and coordination of public policy are always relevant in a domestic context but even more so in the framework of EU accession.

    Under the public administration reform (PAR) pillar of the European Union’s conditionality for the Balkans, the EU puts a strong emphasis on the improvement of the aspirants’ policy development and coordination practices. Independent monitoring suggests that the region’s governments currently display a low level of preparedness in the sphere of policymaking and coordination. Out of the broad PAR portfolio within the EU accession process, the area of policy development and coordination stands out as one of the weakest points.
