This study is an attempt to investigate the extent of EU political conditionality tool's impact on triggering human rights reform making in candidate countries to the EU. It does so by analyzing the distinctive characters of the political conditionality and human rights reform making process. In this framework, the study argues that whereas the EU conditionality is an invaluable tool in encouraging the candidate states in terms of reform making, its impact is not independent from external factors.
