From Enlargement of the Union to Unification of Europe

Is the enlargement of the European Union equivalent to the unification
of Europe? The decision to follow the classical model of enlargement
to the East is a choice that has privileged the exportation of judicial and
economic norms at the expense of the “democratic moment” of the
immediate aftermath of 1989. The article analyzes the causes and consequences
of such a choice around three themes: 1. It is the outcome of
the post-communist transition that has determined the possibilities of
integration into the EU and consequently redrawn the political map of
Europe; 2. Through the enlargement procedure the EU has become, subsequently, both a model, a constraint and a source of legitimacy for the
political elites participating to the process of change in Eastern Europe;
3. The enlarged EU can be seen as a “security community”, its periphery
being stabilized by the very process of cooptation to the center.
