The European Union's enlargement viewed from the East

Antoaneta L. Dimitrova

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Addresses the question 'will joining the European Union help achieve prosperity, stability and democracy in Central and Eastern Europe?
  • Considers how the European Union has approached this enlargement, what conditions and criteria have been set and how these have influenced post communist transformations
  • Shows how, in its enlargement to the East, the European Union has tried to guide the post communist states of Central and Eastern Europe towards new institutions and changing rules
  • Relies primarily on the perspective of scholars born in Eastern Europe to illustrate the importance of the accession process to reform in their native country
