GLPS has applied a specific methodological approach designed to weigh both the dynamic of meeting the Visa-Liberalization Roadmap benchmarks and highlighting the remaining challenges. A specific grid/matrix consisting of individual benchmarks and associated information explains the achievements of Kosovo institutions in meeting the corresponding Visa Liberalization benchmarks. Specific parts of the grid/matrix emphasize the benchmarks to be met and spot the challenges that associate the accomplishment of the reaming benchmarks. To determine the level of implementation of the benchmarks, GLPS has applied numbers, from 0 to 5, and colors, covering the entire list of individual benchmarks/requirements related to the readmission and reintegration, document security, border and migration management, public order and security, and fundamental rights related to the freedom of movement. Per each of the blocks, a specific median number will represent the achievements of the Republic of Kosovo institutions to implement specific benchmarks grouped according to the associated blocks.
