    The long expected enlargement of the European Union (EU) has been one of the most important influences on the development of justice and home affairs (JHA) in the EU since the very creation of the third pillar. Combined with EU's fundamental goal of promoting free movement within its borders, enlargement has posed many challenges for the internal security of the European Union. This paper begins with an examination of these challenges and demonstrates how enlargement has impacted the development of the JHA in three main time periods, namely evolution of the Treaty of Amsterdam, progress following the Tampere European Council of 1999, the acceleration of cooperation after the terrorist attacks on the United States of September 11, and the final preparations for enlargement that are now underway. The paper concludes with a brief consideration of the future of JHA in the EU, including the prospect that the ongoing European Convention will ultimately lead to a new approach for policymaking on JHA in a reformed European Union (whatever it may be called).
