Heidbreder, Eva G. and Carrasco, Laura. (2003) Assessing the Assessment. A Review on the Application Criteria; Minority Protection by the European Commission. EIPA Working Paper 2003/W/04. [Working Paper]

This marked the endpoint of an intensive preparatory phase in which the candidate countries' adherence to criteria for membership of the European Union was annually monitored in the so-called Regular Reports....The question thus arises of how the Commission arrives at its evaluations.

This study aims to shed light on the above question by focusing on the criterion "respect for and protection of minorities"....
