The Enlargement of the European Union

Marise Cremona

Oxford University Press

All prospective EU Member States have existing external policies that are likely to be affected by European Union membership. The increased level of EC and EU activity over the last decade, as well as developments in the nature of that activity, means that the effects on existing policies of new Members in the fifth enlargement are likely to be more far-reaching than they were at the time of earlier enlargements in the 1970s or 1980s. This is yet another area of the acquis which appears to be a moving target for pre-accession adjustment. The first part of this chapter examines the scope of the obligations imposed on new Member States as they adapt their external policies — international agreements, trade instruments, foreign policy — to Community and Union policy and practice.
