Languages of publication



Main aim of analysis in the article titled “Non-EU” Post Yugoslav countries in the face of integrative Europe – few remarks” is to ascertain the extent to which Post Yugoslav countries, which are not European Union members yet, are prepared for the EU membership. Analysis includes four Post Yugoslav countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republic of Serbia, Montenegro, Republic of Macedonia. It was confirmed, that all those countries aspire to fully-fledged membership in the EU. However, still none of them sufficiently comply with criteria imposed by the EU. In the nearest future, the greatest chances have: Montenegro, Republic of Serbia, Republic of Macedonia. The EU still has a lot of objections towards Bosnia and Herzegovina. The most important one is lack of conducting an institutional reform in the country. Preparation of that countries for the EU membership is systematically, yearly monitored by method of screening. Checking compatibility of law regulations, which exist in those countries standing as a candidate to EU, with the EU legislation acquis communitare gives a possibility to make an assessment of the level of their preparation to get a fully-fledged membership status. Countries, which has been analysed, are a ‘special case’, which find it very hard to face up to rigorous accession conditions imposed by European Union, although the EU is worried about the safety and stability in the region and strive for close relations with them.
