  • Explores the Europeanisation of the Western Balkans in a systematic, theory-oriented and comparative way Provides rich insights into the dynamics of the current enlargement and the patterns in the merging of EU internal and external security Empirically proves that Croatia and Macedonia showed strong compliance efforts in justice and home affairs, demonstrating that the EU has managed to compensate for less credible membership rewards Will be of interest to both academics and practitioners concerned with adaptation and transformation processes in South-Eastern Europe and the possibilities and limitations of the EU's influence in the outside world Intersects the research on the use of conditionality from previous enlargement rounds with the current strategy for South-Eastern Europe
