First session of Jour Fixe 2020: An institutional analysis of the Posting of Workers Directive in the Western Balkans



In this first session of the Jour Fixe that took place on 14 January 2020, our colleague Sonila Danaj discussed findings of the Posting of Workers in Eastern Europe (EEPOW) project. The presentation focused on the transposition of the Posting of Workers Directive in the four candidate countries of the Western Balkans: Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia. The analysis draws from research and a needs assessment of their capacities to implement this Directive in terms of six interdependent institutional domains: legal framework, institutional arrangement, inter-agency cooperation, human resources, stakeholder engagement, and public governance.
