Remaking Europe: The European Union and the Transition Economies

by Van Jozef M. Brabant (Editor), Wladimir Andreff (Contribution by), Jozef M. van Brabant (Contribution by), Hubert Gabrisch (Contribution by), Marie Lavigne (Contribution by)
 

The 1996–1997 Intergovernmental Conference and a clearer road to monetary union have paved the way for the start of negotiations for accession to the European Union (EU) of up to ten transition economies. A major watershed in efforts to integrate “Europe,” the plans to widen the EU will inevitably conflict with forces for deepening integration.

Overview

The 1996–1997 Intergovernmental Conference and a clearer road to monetary union have paved the way for the start of negotiations for accession to the European Union (EU) of up to ten transition economies. A major watershed in efforts to integrate “Europe,” the plans to widen the EU will inevitably conflict with forces for deepening integration. Accession negotiations will be complex, acrimonious, and protracted; their outcome, in terms of the “quality” of accession, are currently unforeseeable. Focusing especially on economic factors, this timely volume explores the key questions of widening: why the negotiations are likely to be cumbersome and contentious for all concerned, why the evolving relationship between the EU and its eastern neighbors has been less than smooth, and why considerable asymmetries exist among countries and over time in the distribution of the gains and losses for existing and new members alike.

This important work addresses the problems facing the formerly state socialist economies of Eastern Europe as they move toward membership in the European Union and also highlights barriers to achieving an ever closer union of European nations as the EU expands beyond its current membership.

No other book covers the topic so comprehensively and in so unified a fashion. The scholarship is excellent—a significant contribution to the literature.
