Owing to the global financial crisis of 2007–2009 and subsequently the Eurozone crisis, the accession of Central and Eastern European countries to the European Union and the Eurozone has not been an easy one. The EU's Eastward Enlargement analyses challenges that these countries currently face in their pursuit of economic self-reliance. Covering a period from the second half of the 1980s to the present, Yoji Koyama provides unique and objective analyses of the European Union and the Euro system from a non-European's perspective. He offers a detailed reexamination of the fundamental problems of the European Union, which in turn have affected the autonomous development of countries such as Poland, the former Yugoslavia, Albania, and the Baltic States. This book is a useful addition to the scholarship available on the Euro system and Central and Eastern European countries. It will help readers gain a more holistic understanding of the ongoing Eurozone crisis and the future of the Eurozone project.

This is an excellent book describing a rather remote part of the world and analyzing a not too well-known development." Joze Mencinger Professor Emeritus, University of Ljubljana Former deputy prime minister of Slovenia "Yoji Koyama's treatise on the EU's Eastward Enlargement (EEE)... shed[s] a great deal of useful light on regional economic heterogeneity. His book provides a lucid overview of the CEEC's (Central and Eastern European Countries) post-Soviet economic systemic changes and transformations. Koyama's motive for writing EEE is his 'desire to see (the creation of) peaceful and prosperous small countries of CEEC'. He rigorously pursues this goal drawing on his vast CEEC and Balkan experiences by critically analyzing systemic flaws and offering insightful solutions ... The dream of the greater EU project remains, but could swiftly be transformed into a nightmare if Koyama's sage advice is ignored." The Journal of Comparative Economic Studies “EEE is a treasure trove of statistics and charts documenting CEEC, West Balkan, Baltic and Slovenia economic performance, accompanied by a rich narrative describing policies, shocks, adjustments and reforms, allowing readers to compare the experiences of EU and non-EU members, and assess the problems associated with the Euro.” The Journal of Comparative Economic Studies “I can recommend the book to all those interested in the EU and its enlargement, to academics, businessmen, the general public in all the Western Balkan countries as well as to those from countries which joined the EU after the fall of the Berlin wall. The author has not only read extensively on the issues, but has also spent a lot of time in the region. His interpretations have a touch of 'hands on' experience which makes the book even more interesting and provocative.” Croatian International Relations Review

What will joining the EU mean for the new Eastern member states and their economies? This book offers a detailed study of the macroeconomic and structural adjustment burden. It envisages a real currency appreciation stemming from price convergence, capital inflows and weak structural change. The widespread belief that an Eastern enlargement of the Union would be overwhelmingly to the detriment of the present EU (budgetary costs, locational decisions, trade deficits) is rejected. The authors discuss the lack of competitiveness of Eastern countries and their need for structural adjustments (in the financial sector, in agriculture, and in manufacturing) in order for them to survive and thrive in their new economic environment.

The role of the European Union (EU) in Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) and its ¿near abroad¿ has attracted much scholarly attention over the past few years. Notwithstanding the successes of the EU¿s eastwards enlargement, the ¿transformative power¿ of the EU in the region has often been called into question, both in terms of its depth and longevity. This book addresses a number of key questions: What determines EU performance in post-communist Europe? What are the conditions that influence it? How does the projection of EU power differ between its enlargement policy and the European Neighbourhood policy? To answer these questions this volume brings together a wide range of case studies, based on different approaches and methods, but with a single analytical focus on ¿performance¿. The book¿s coverage and focus will be of interest to academics, practitioners and students interested in the EU, CEECs, pre- and post-enlargement studies and more widely to those interested in the international relations and the governance of wider Eastern Europe. The chapters of this book were originally published as a special issue of East European Politics.

Eu Enlargement And The Constitutions Of Central And Eastern Europe

In the wake of the EU's biggest enlargement, this book explores the adaptation of the constitutions of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) for membership in the European Union. In response to the painful past, these new constitutions were notably closed to transfer of powers to international organizations, and accorded a prominent status to sovereignty and independence. A little more than a decade later, the process of amending these provisions in view of the transfer of sovereign powers to a supranational organization has proved a sensitive and controversial exercise. This book analyses the amendments against the background of comparative experience and theory of sovereignty, as well as the context of political sensitivities, such as rising euroscepticism ahead of accession referendums.

This book presents a new approach to studying the European Union’s regional and global relevance. It recasts into a dynamic perspective the three most significant systemic processes that define the EU as a regionalist project: its enlargement, neighborhood, and mega-regional policies. The book argues that these processes collectively demonstrate a dynamic shift of the core tenets of European regionalism from an inward-looking process of region building to an open, selective system of global interactions.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 2,0, University of Hohenheim (Lehrstuhl fur Aussenwirtschaft), course: International Institutions, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The eurozone member countries have agreed to permanently abandon economic policy instruments such as monetary and exchange rate policies and to accept the European Central Bank (ECB) as the decision making body to determine the common monetary policy, notably the interest rates and the money supply. It goes without saying that such an institution is not able to fine-tune its decisions in order to meet particular economic challenges in certain member countries. In this respect, the eastward enlargement of the European Monetary Union (EMU) will bring major challenges to the ECB, as varying inflation rates in different member countries and the determination of a single interest rate may have disruptive consequences. From the viewpoint of the eastward enlargement of the eurozone the paper illustrates the various challenges the ECB inevitably has to face. Further, it describes the reform of the ECB Governing Council. An important question concerning the ECB is the following: Is there a danger for the single European monetary policy from letting Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) join the eurozone or from letting them join the eurozone too early?"

In order to meet the changing needs of the agricultural sector, the European Union has advocated a new 'European model of Agriculture' which will provide a competitive and diverse agricultural sector that is environmentally responsible and that uses Community funds wisely. In order to implement such a range of policies the EU will need to pass a large amount of legislation. This book sets out to analyze whether the legislative framework for this model is feasible and whether it can deliver these policy objectives. The timely analysis of the tension between the EU model and the global economy as supervised by the WTO, the emphasis on environmental protection, and the place of agriculture in the wider rural economy are all issues at the heart of the present debate. This book is the first to deal with the mid-term review of the CAP and is therefore essential reading for academics, practitioners and policy makers in the field.
