Human Rights in the EU’s Conditionality Policy Towards Enlargement Countries in the Western Balkans
AbstractThe special journal section in the present issue was inspired by FRAME (Fostering Human Rights Among European Policies), a large-scale EU FP7 research project that investigated the role of human rights, including a part that focused specifically on the EU’s enlargement conditionality towards the Western Balkans. The research gave a bird’s eye view on the situation of human rights in the Western Balkans, which allowed us to identify a number of challenges, such as the shallowness of reforms in the area of human rights and democracy in the whole region, or the short supply of in-depth case studies focusing on specific human rights.
