Country analysis ‘Bencher-(In)Effectiveness of EC Monitoring Mechanisms’
February 2018 – This country analysis will explore how effective the eight selected benchmarks are by assessing the degree to which the objectives have been achieved and the extent to which targeted problems have been solved. The analysis captures the challenges and evolution of the benchmarks under these two chapters during the period 2009-2017, considering that 2009 marked a new stage in bilateral relations between EU and Albania after the entry into force of the Stabilization and Association Agreement. The sample was selected following a mapping of benchmarks that are common or similar among the six Western Balkan aspirants for EU membership. This analysis represents a first major attempt to critically evaluate the degree to which the objectives are achieved and the extent to which targeted problems are solved in order to further advance in the EU accession process.
