Proposal of Key Policy Priorities for Kosovo Government’s (Strategic) Plan 2014-2018

December 4, 2014

The Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS) and Institute for Advanced Studies (GAP) strive to assist Kosovo‟s transparent and comprehensive integration into the European Union. This process necessitates the inclusion of policies that adequately reflect the EU‟s political and economic standards, as well as the recommendations contained in the most recent European Commission Progress Report for Kosovo. GLPS and GAP seek to advise the Kosovo government on key priorities that should be included in the forthcoming Strategic Plan. Rather than paralleling the objectives set forth in the Progress Report, GLPS and GAP recommendations focus solely on key issues for Kosovo‟s integration into the EU. Adoption of such measures presents several challenges that require the government to demonstrate commitment to advancing policies that align with EU standards.In pursuing these aims, GLPS and GAP seek to advise the Kosovo government on key priorities. In July, the Kosovo government concluded negotiations of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SAA), representing what will become the first comprehensive agreement with the EU. The SAA focuses on a number of areas, such as enhanced political dialogue and new forms of cooperation. Given the resolution of the political deadlock that has hindered progress towards EU integration, signing the SAA is crucial for Kosovo to immediately proceed on the path to integration.
