Abstract

The SAAs the EU signed with the South East Europe Countries (SEE) in the pre-accession framework are the main tool to enhance the harmonization of SEE legal orders with the European standards.
The convergence to the European acquis is a pre-condition to obtain the EU membership.
However the harmonization process is not only a formal transposition of the EU legal standards in the national legal orders but it requires a direct implementation of these regulations before the national Courts. Therefore, the Constitutional provisions interpretation and the practice of Constitutional/national Courts are fundamental to enhance the application of the supranational/international regulations and rights in the internal legal order. The paper aims at understanding the approach of each SEE Constitution and Constitutional Court with regard to the international agreements validity in the national legal orders.
