    With the EU expanding its physical boundaries to the South and the East, one of the main questions preoccupying its member states is how to deal with the growing number of small applicant states. Research has concentrated on the potential effect of large candidate countries on the enlarged EU, but most of this has concentrated on large countries. This paper aims to examine some of the political effects which small applicant states would have on the enlarged EU, with particular reference to its common foreign and security policies. To this end, this paper will analyze the characteristics of small candidate countries in order to deduce their likely positions and patterns of behavior and, consequently, their effect on the future development of the CFSP. In particular, their impacts will be examined on the basis of three following questions. First, how will heterogeneous and diverse interest of the acceding small states effect the cohesion and autonomy of the CFSP? Second, how will they affect its operational efficiency? Lastly, how will they then influence the remit of the CFSP, focusing on the relationship between the EU and the U.S., Russia, etc.?
