The State of the European Union

This chapter discusses the paucity of theories on the enlargement of the European Union. Literature on the EU has generally treated enlargement as a series of episodes, rather than a phenomenon intrinsic to the integration process. However, a new generation of scholars in political science and international relations have begun to explore the dynamics of EU enlargement. Studies by Friis (1997), Schimmelpfennig (1999), and Torreblanca (2000) are just some of the efforts to analyse the nature of enlargement as a feature of EU integration.
