For the last twenty years, the EU has sought to install the rule of law and democracy in the Western Balkan countries. However, today these almost universally accepted values are (still) seriously impaired in these fragile states. In this presentation, we explore why the European Union failed in its transformative role in the Western Balkans, and we discuss whether it can still play a part in the democratization of the countries in the region.
To answer this question, we will proceed in three steps. First, we define what we mean by “democracy” and the “democratization” in general, and, more specifically, whether we can speak about the democracy decline in the Western Balkan countries’ political and social contexts. Then, we ask the question of causes – what brought about this democracy decline in the Western Balkan countries. Finally, we will try to answer the question of whether the EU can do anything about it or is the EU helpless in responding to the poor state of democracy in these countries.
To do this, we will touch upon the EU’s formal approach towards the Western Balkan countries based on its Stabilization and Association Process. We will critically analyze how the EU handled this process and the consequences it has left both to the internal political and social developments in these countries and the credibility of the accession process. We will use a rough comparison between the EU’s approach towards the Western Balkan countries and the Central and Eastern European countries that became members after 2004. By looking at the similarities and differences between the two enlargement cases, we will try to point out similar or different outcomes. Moving within the established definition of democracy, we will discuss whether the EU has or can have the instruments to impose or install democracy in any country. Whether the success depends on the domestic context, the EU’s capacities, or is it constrained by a very definition of democracy? If the EU cannot export democracy, can it still assist democratic processes in its neighborhood, and in what way?
