Abstract
EU conditionality is one of the guiding principles of accession, post-conflict reconstruction efforts in the Balkans being pushed forward by European supranational stimuli. The “return to Europe” theme was a commonplace for political discourses within the South Eastern polities, however, it chose to develop differently throughout the area, occasioned or supported by different contexts, political forces, historical events, ethnical cleavages and social structures. This article tackles the European Neighbourhood Policy offering a discussion under the prospects of the European conditionality and EU-led administrative and state reform for the Western Balkans. It dwelves on policy-specific themes with country evolutions to analyse the historical enlargement dynamics of the Balkans throughout a diachronical perspective.

Keywords
Europeanization, EU conditionality, Western Balkans, agreement, integration.
