Assessing the Development Gap
This report identifies major existing gaps in the four socio-economic dimensions (economic, human, environmental and institutional) and reveals those gaps which could potentially hinder social and economic integration of neighbor states with the EU. To achieve this, the authors aim to assess the existing trends in the size of the gaps across countries and problem areas, taking into consideration the specific origin of the gap between EU15/EU12, on the one hand, and FSU republics, EU candidates and West Balkan countries, on the other hand.
