Abstract:The following Bachelor Thesis introduces a study which focuses on the development of the functioning economic market in Republic of Kosovo and further questions to what extent Kosovo fulfills this part of the Copenhagen Criteria. Therefore, the following research question is: Does the market economy of the Republic of Kosovo meet the Copenhagen Criteria? Kosovo declared its independence in 2008 and is up today not completely recognized as an “independent state” by the whole European Union. Therefore, it is motivating to find out how the “European Integration Process” in the specific framework of the “Copenhagen Criteria” takes place. Moreover, it will be interesting to see how far the development of a functioning market economy is established and which challenges are still required in order to fulfil this aspect of the Copenhagen Criteria. As a result, the main tool for analyzing is the “Economic Copenhagen Criteria” in respect to its point of “functioning economic market.” Hence, Kosovo faces to implement strict guidelines and must meet requirements set out by the European Commission and Kosovo’s institutions. Furthermore, the status quo of Kosovo’s functioning market economy will be stated. Thereby, Kosovo’s compliance will be analyzed and it will be found out where adoption is lacking.
