EU Accession Negotiations

European integration is the process of the political, legal and economic integration of states and regions in Europe. This term most frequently covers integration into the European Union (EU). However, the important processes on this road are those of adopting the norms and standards of the Council of Europe, Organization for European Security and Cooperation, and other international organizations and regional initiatives.

EU accession involves accepting the rights and obligations the EU is based on, as well as its institutional framework and legal system (acquis). Accession negotiations represent the adaptation and harmonization of the national legal system with the EU acquis. Negotiations are on the schedule of harmonization and potential transitional arrangements that provide the harmonization of legislation prior to membership. The content of the acquis and the institutional framework are not subject to negotiation. Instead, the new member state must accept them at the moment of accession to membership.

The acquis has been divided into 35 chapters for the purposes of accession negotiations. Negotiations on behalf of the Republic of Serbia are being run by the Government, having established the relevant structure and defined the required procedures for running the accession negotiations.
