Martin Thorton, Gabriela. (2002) The European Union: Teleology and Some Challenges of the Eastern Enlargement. CEPS Policy Brief No. 19, March 2002. [Policy Paper]
[From the Introduction]. This essay argues that the enlargement process of the European Union is teleological driven. The European Union in response to the desire of CEECs to integrate, especially crafted certain programmes, such as PHARE, which by the end of 1999 had spent 11 billion ECU in pre-access development aid, and certain institutions such as the White Paper and the Agenda 2000, a set of budgetary, farm and systemic reforms targeting the preparation for EU enlargement. This paper will also focus on some challenges that enlargement has brought about such as migration, security and issues of identity.
