This chapter discusses the European integration of the former Yugoslavia. The EU marked its policy shift by giving a new name to the region—“the Western Balkans”. This new term of political geography covers all the former Yugoslav republics except Slovenia, while adding Albania to the group. The gradual integration of the region into Europe was titled “the Stabilization and Association Process” (SAP) in 1997. The SAP was conceived as a progressive partnership, in which the EU offers an aspiring member a mixture of trade concessions (Autonomous Trade Measures), economic and financial assistance, and a contractual relationship (Stabilization and Association Agreement—SAA). Overall, the SAP in the Western Balkans has been relatively successful, thanks to incentives available to the international community, such as preferential trade agreements.
