The European Union in charge of the countries of the Western Balkans also very often point out that the EU member states, the countries on the way to accession, as well as those yet to open negotiations with the European Union, should be asked for concrete evidence of progress in criminal justice. crime and the protection of human rights. It is believed that the process of negotiating with "candidate countries" should begin with these issues because they are the biggest challenge for the national legal and judicial system. Of particular importance in this regard are the negotiating chapters 23 and 24, which, as a reminder, relate, inter alia, to the functioning of the rule of law, protection of human rights, judicial reform, cooperation of judicial, police and customs authorities in the fight against organized crime. , to fight corruption, confiscation of criminally acquired property, formation of joint investigation teams. That is why the Anti-Corruption Strategy states that the fight against corruption is one of the key challenges of the rule of law in most countries involved in the EU enlargement process, and that this fight is related to the protection of basic human rights and criminal justice.
