euinside in Croatia

On the 1st of July 2013, Croatia is expected to become the 28th member of the European Union after it ended successfully the accession negotiations. The accession of a second country from former Yugoslavia to the EU (after Slovenia) is a big step forward for the region, as the expectations are this to serve as a catalyst for the European integration processes in the Western Balkans in the future. These processes have already been increasing after Montenegro started officially accession talks in 2012 and Serbia got a candidate country status; with Macedonia the European Commission has introduced a new approach - high level dialogue, while waiting for a solution to the dispute with Greece in order for the real accession talks to start; Bosnia and Herzegovina too is about to start on a journey to EU membership.

Because of this stir euinside decided to follow the events more closely and in July 2012 we have opened an office in Zagreb. From there we will be following the last steps of Croatia toward membership and also how are the other former Yugoslav republics moving onto this path. This is our main subject on Zagreb's accession, but please do follow the other subject of ours on the Western Balkans, where there are articles from the past 3 years of accession efforts of the countries in the region.

You will probably not believe it, but in the Balkans the lack of rule of law and the tolerance of corruption have some fun aspects. This is the case with the theft of the most contentious reform in Croatia by ... Montenegro. No, this is not a joke and it's not a product of a local satiric site ...
