EU Integration & Policy Change

BPRG advocates for the integration of Kosovo and the wider Western Balkans into the EU by encouraging and facilitating the needed policy change and reforms within the framework of the accession process. With EU integration as a key policy avenue, BPRG works to accelerate the democratic consolidation of institutions and full reconciliation between states in the WB. BPRG not only monitors the harmonisation of the legislation with the acquis, but it also provides valuable support to government institutions and policy recommendations in order to advance the reform making agenda.
