The 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.
