Eastward Enlargement of the European Union : Can Failure Be Avoided
The start of membership negotiations with five new East European countries is a political gesture made by the European Union. But a number of the countries concerned have not completed their transition to a market economy successfully, or are incapable of respecting the rules of the Single Market. How is it possible to avoid negotiations running into the ground, or, alternatively, to avoid accession occurring before these problems have been solved? European financial aid alone is not enough to help support the renewal of transition. The Union will have to participate in reinforcing the competencies and credibility of national institutions, whose weakness has slowed-down or even blocked reform in the 1990s.
