The stabilisation and association process: the western balkans

As potential candidates, the countries of the Western Balkans have a European perspective. Recognised during the Feira European Council in 2000 and confirmed by the Thessaloniki European Council in 2003, this European perspective is integrated into the stabilisation and association process, which is the European Unions policy in relation to the countries of the Western Balkans. In addition to the specific regional requirements regarding political and economic stability and regional cooperation, the stabilisation and association process has gradually incorporated the enlargement process instruments to bring the countries of the region closer to the EU.
