The evolution of the economic and politic events and situations occurs in those countries, makes the acceleration of acceptance more safely or not. The specification of the factors that haves an huge importance on the problem, must be crucial for the politic-makers, in order to reduced the negative effects on the development of their countries, discussing in this manner for the effective strategies. Membership, first of all is considered like an opportunity for the socio-economic development , reducing the unemployment and giving the citizens an better standard of living. But , this process, like all the other process, have in self many costs, whether social notwithstanding economic costs. This is true, not only for the countries of Western Balkans , but also for the countries of European Union.
