The ‘fundamentals first’ approach – meaning the rule of law, economic governance and public administration reform – is percieved as a crucial requirement by the European Commission in the accession process of the Western Balkan EU aspirants. Therefore, the quality of institutions, both governmental and judicial, is seen as a key determining factor for the well-being of these economies and their citizens. Working on these issues, the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) has identified the areas where regional cooperation in the justice dimension could be beneficial for the accession process.

During this conference the SEELS Network had one participant.
