The article specifies that the mechanism of the EU enlargement is the complex of stages and a dynamic political and legal process including criteria adopted at the EU summit in Copenhagen in 1993, namely geographic, political and economic.
Views on the current EU enlargement is closely related in Greece to the question of EU funding. At the same time, there is a clear increase in the desire for enlargement not to be costly, up by 9%, and that the EU interest be put first (increase by 11%).
The latest bout of the European Union enlargement generated a range of problems unknown of in the anamnesis of this association. Specific historic experience of the applicants pre-conditioned a relative immaturity of democratic regimes in those countries, weakness of consensus and tolerance culture which has already rooted itself in the West-European society, and which has to a considerable degree secured stable development of Western Europe over the last decades
This paper examines the prospects and problems of Eastern enlargement. It argues that considerations of stability and long run prosperity are the primary reasons why the EU has promised to enlarge eastward and why the Central and Eastern European nations wish to join. While high politics prompted this promise, opposition from EU special interest groups is likely to delay fulfilment of the promise for many years. If this is the case, Europe should create a series of intermediate steps that would permit the reintegration of Europe to proceed apace. If a quick enlargement does occur, EU politics.
Successive enlargements have diluted the aims of the EU’s founding fathers. Ever wider Europe has replaced ever greater union. The larger the EU becomes, the less likely it is to develop into a true political union. It’s no coincidence the British, whose vision of the EU is a little more than a free-trade zone, are the biggest apologists for enlargement. It’s time to draw a line and rebuild the EU around core nations who really believe in the Union. If not, where do we stop: Israel, Azerbaijan, Morocco, Cape Verde? 2. EXPORT STABILITY. Ukraine would be better off with its natural ally to the East. Turkey does not want Western values imposed on its culture – its future lies as a regional power in the Middle East. Successive enlargements have enriched and invigorated the European Union.
To join the EU, a state needs to fulfil economic and political conditions called the Copenhagen criteria (after the Copenhagen summit in June 1993), which require a stable democratic government that respects the rule of law, and its corresponding freedoms and institutions.
One of the concerns about eastern enlargement was how the dramatic increase in the number of Member States – from 15 to 25 in 2004, 27 in 2007 and 28 in July 2013 – would affect the functioning of the EU. A much larger membership could be expected to have a negative impact on the legislative capacity of the Council of Ministers. Still, it might have been expected that more participants in Council negotiations would at least lead to a decrease in the speed of decision-making even if the quantity of the output remained constant.
the overall efciency of EU decision-making either, not even during the ve years in which it functioned on the basis of the Nice Treaty; the Lisbon Treaty was managed to be negotiated subsequently; and the new diversity within the Union was accommodated. Nonetheless, 'enlargement fatigue' has become a scapegoat for a range of deeper problems and stumbling blocks in the EU, giving a new understanding to the 'widening versus deepening' dichotomy which characterised the debate prior to the 2004 enlargement round.

almost 12 years of political life in the moment of transformation of the country from a closed society into an open one, - background in economics which heavily constraints (or disciplines) my thinking. All of that should not lead us to forgetting the EU economic and social practices. In my understanding the existing system is, in the long run, untenable because it undermines our future, because it undermines European competitiveness in the globalized world. also means the enlargement of territory for which decisions are to be made. It brings about the retreat of classical parlamentarism in favour of new mechanisms of life in society and with all my sensitivity inherited from the communist era I cannot take it as a positive thing only.
