Institutional Models of Managing Cohesion Policy - A Proposed Model for Serbia

Authors: Ognjen Mirić, Ivan Knežević

Belgrade, September 2015

Area: European Integration

 

The European Union envisaged the total of 351.8 billion euros for the implementation of cohesion policy for the 2014–2020 budgetary period. EU candidate countries are preparing for the implementation of this policy during the negotiation process, Chapter 22 ‒ Regional policy and coordination of structural instruments. One of the key elements of negotiations in this chapter is the institutional framework for cohesion policy management.
The Republic of Serbia put much effort into creating institutional structure which will enable efficient coordination of reforms supported through projects financed from EU funds. It is very important to define the model of cohesion policy management and to start the process of making institutional framework as soon as possible, due to the amount of work, administrative procedures for the establishment of ESI structures and the time necessary for putting them into operation. The purpose of this analysis is to ascertain the principles and the optimal model of the institutional framework for managing ESI Funds that would be applicable in the Republic of Serbia. This analysis does not define the current institutions which will form the managing structure of ESI Funds. The authors think that the best possible model of managing ESI Funds in the Republic of Serbia immediately after its accession to the EU in financial perspective would be the following: sector, centralised, concentrated and mixed.
