Brussels, 22 – 23 October 2008

Conference: Effects of EU Enlargement

With the enlargements of 2004 and 2007, the European Union has altered its dimension and faces new challenges. The Trans European Policy Studies Association has encouraged and supported this process of expansion, accompanying it by analyses of ‘widening’ and ‘deepening’.

Four years after the beginning of this round of enlargement, it is appropriate to assess the effects which it has had on the new member states. How has involvement in the structures of the European Union shaped their polity, policy and politics? How has it affected the EU as a whole?
