The study analyzes the general (European) and regional, as well as national context of the process of accession of Montenegro to the European Union. The EU is in a negative stage of its development, after Brexit, but even more since the Pandemic has seriously hampered global economy and the economy of the EU. Consequently, the general context of the EU enlargement process is to be taken into consideration when analyzing the accession of each candidate country from the Western Balkans region. Next relevant context is the regional one. Within those frameworks, national context - the case of Montenegro as candidate country is considered. Montenegro is the regional frontrunner in the accession to the EU, since thirty three screened chapters have been opened and three are provisionally closed. Тhe question of the EU absorption capacity remains open, together with enlargement dynamic and deadlines. Enlargement process is not a priority for the Union, but it will not be abandoned. It will be performed in a longer period than it had been previously scheduled, at Thessaloniki Agenda (2003), when European future was promised to all countries in the region. Montenegro, as candidate country, has special geostrategic importance for the Union
