This paper analyzes the EU's strategy and foreign policy toolbox for engaging the Western Balkan countries in achieving its goals in the area of Justice and Home Affairs (JHA). It argues that the EU involves the Western Balkan countries in a dual-track strategy. By providing them with the prospect of future membership, the EU has initiated a pre-accession process which aims not only at strengthening cooperation in the JHA field but at gradually transforming these states into full-fledged member states that are capable of participating themselves in the European area of freedom, security and justice.
