What does the future hold for EU Enlargement? Our contributors reflect on this year’s European Commission reports on the progress achieved by EU candidate and potential candidate countries, framing it within the wider political and economic context of each country. (If you are interested in how this compares to last year’s reports, the 2015 expert reactions are available here). Eli Gateva on Macedonia: The Commission abandoned its diplomatic tone and delivered a damning diagnosis Esra Özyürek on Turkey: Was this the very last enlargement report for Turkey? Jasmin Mujanović on Bosnia and Herzegovina: The report reflects a disconnect between Brussels’ rhetoric and the reality in BiH Tena Prelec on Serbia: Perpetual electoral haggling is arguably real progress Krenar Gashi on Kosovo: Still far from membership, but catching up with the neighbours Petar Marković on Montenegro: Speed-wise the unchallenged champion of accession negotiations, but implementation in key areas is still lacking Andi Hoxhaj on Albania: There is a good chance of opening accession negotiations over the next year
