The constellations of Europe: How enlargement will transform the EU

Heather Grabbe
02 April 2004

Eastward enlargement will change the EU far more than its current members expect. Heather Grabbe plots the new members' positions in the emerging constellations of Europe - on the new constitution, the EU's budget, economic and regulatory policies, border controls, defence and the EU's role in the world. She argues that widening will ultimately lead to a deepening of European integration.
Heather Grabbe was deputy director of the CER (2000-2004).
