With the entry into force of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SAA) between the Republic of Kosovo and the European Union1, on 1 April 2016, the first National Programme for its Implementation (NPISAA)2 was adopted by the Government (on 16 December 2015) and the Assembly (on 10 March 2016), and was under implemented. In the meantime, the policy planning framework and institutional interaction between the two parties (Kosovo and the EU) has advanced and become more dynamic, with a focus on implementing the reforms required under the SAA. In this new context, which requires increased dynamism of reforms and much more political commitment in this regard, implementation of the SAA takes place within two policy planning frameworks: Programme for Implementation of the SAA (NPISAA) and the European Reform Agenda (ERA). In other words, NPISAA is the umbrella framework, while ERA serves as more focused document putting forward medium-term priorities and short-term measures for ongoing discussions between the SAA signatory parties, at the highest political level, on key reforms that Kosovo has to implement in its EU accession process.
