About this book


The European Union and Enlargement is about the EU's 'power of attraction' - an exploration of the potential for EU impact on conflicts within Europe - and the implications for the EU to influence the 'order' beyond its borders. It provides both a theoretical and historical context in order to understand the EU's impact and combines this with empirical analysis of the perceptions of the Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots and Turkey on the accession process and its effect on the Cyprus issue. It demonstrates the limits and the potential of the EU as a global actor through its power of attraction.
