Common path dependencies 👇

The EU future of the Western Balkans countries remains uncertain, due to backsliding of reforms and widespread corruption and state capture. SELDI’s Corruption Monitoring System (CMS) results for 2021 confirm that corruption in the region is not abating. https://seldi.net/publications/policy-briefs/seldi-policy-brief-13-corruption-in-the-western-balkans-not-abating-whats-next/

Upholding the rule of law should remain a core EU accession and membership conditionality, and no candidate country should be admitted in the Union before this objective is met. See SELDI infographic on breaking the accession backlog in the Western Balkans https://seldi.net/publications/infographics/infographic-tackling-corruption-and-breaking-the-accession-backlog-in-the-western-balkans/
