          • Coalition prEUgovor report on progress of Serbia in Chapters 23 and 24

          • The coalition prEUgovor has been monitoring Serbia’s progress in regard to the adherence to political criteria for EU membership and policies covered under Chapters 23 (Judiciary and Fundamental Rights) and 24 (Justice, Freedom and Security) of the European acquis in the negotiation process.

        • Serbia officially started the negotiation process for its accession to European Union (EU) in January 2014, more than two years. So far, only two negotiation chapters have been opened-  32 (Financial Control) and 35 (Other Issues, which in Serbia’s case, refers to Belgrade-Pristina relations).

           

          The Republic of Serbia prepared Action Plans (APs) for Chapters 23 and 24, based on the recommendations of the Screening Reports for these two chapters. Action Plans are intended to be the key documents for their respective chapters throughout the negotiation process and, having been amended several times, European Commission (EC) finally adopted them. Subsequently, and in expectation that negotiations would be opened in the near future, the Republic of Serbia drafted negotiation positions for Chapters 23 and 24, but the interested public could access only summaries thereof.

           

          The coalition prEUgovor has published new report on progress of Serbia in Chapters 23 (Judiciary and Fundamental Rights) and 24 (Justice, Freedom and Security) of the European acquis in the negotiation process. Beside the insight into the situation, the report offers a series of recommendations for improvement in these chapters.

           

          Members of the coalition prEUgovor are:

           

          ASTRA - Action against Trafficking in Human Beings, Autonomous Women’s Center (AWC), Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP), Center for Investigative Reporting in Serbia (CINS) , Center for Applied European Studies (CPES), Group 484  and Transparency Serbia (TS). 

          The prEUgovor is a coalition of seven CSOs formed with the aim to monitor the implementation of policies within the framework of the Serbian accession process to the EU, focusing on chapters 23 and 24. Mission of prEUgovor is to propose measures to improve the reforms, using the process of EU integration to achieve substantial progress in the further democratization of Serbia.

          This project is financially supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Belgrade (www.norveska.org.rs
