Description

As the EU and NATO prepare to enlarge, this volume assesses the likely impact on new member states and their neighbours remaining outside these two organizations. Through a combination of thematic and case study chapters it discusses the economic and security implications of enlargement for both ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’.

  • Assesses the likely impact of EU and Nato enlargement.
  • Investigates three thematic areas: economic cooperation, security and defence, and free movement of people.
  • Considers five country case studies.
  • Outlines the current relations between the states, how these relate to the past and what effect enlargement will have.
