The European Commission, through the Thessaloniki Declaration of 2003, included Kosovo in the Stabilisation and Association process. This was without prejudice to the issue of Kosovo’s status, and in line with UNSC Resolution 1244. The importance of the Declaration lies in the fact that, from this moment on, the European Commission began tracking Kosovo’s reform process relating to the EU, separately from that of Serbia’s. At the current time, all of the Western Balkan region, except Kosovo, has signed Stabilisation and Association Agreements. When it comes to legal obstacles, the EU is in a position to sign a Stabilisation and Association Agreement with Kosovo, in line with Articles 217 and 218 of the Treaty on Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), whilst, at the same time, respecting the position of all twenty-seven Member States on Kosovo regarding the issue of status. Kosovo is currently trying to fulfil some short term priorities, before beginning formal negotiations for a Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SAA). This paper aims to outline what progress has been made by Kosovo towards the EU, based on the Feasibility Study for a Stabilisation and Association Agreement, and also to highlight the key obstacles that lie ahead.
