Θεοφάνης Μαλκίδης

Abstract


The text analyzes the expansion of the European Union (EU) to the
Balkans and it is reported that the enlargement towards the Balkans
constitutes a historical turning-point for Europe, giving an end to the partition
that the Cold War had brought and it is incomparable to the previous enlargements
taking the size and the particularities of candidate countries into
consideration.
The political philosophy of the enlargement of the EU to the Balkan
peninsula, the criteria of relation with the EU, the conditions of integration, the developmental aid of the EU to the region states, the prospects from the
enlargement to the Balkans constitute chapters of the article.
The text leads to the conclusion that the enlargement of the EU onto
Balkan territory is a chance for a new European political, economical and
social domain and expansion. The text winds up to the conclusion that the
enlargement of the EU to the Balkan domain will help the state-members of
the EU, and the candidate countries as well, it will improve the competitiveness
of economy of the EU and will promote the security of the whole of
Europe.
At the same time the text maintains that this enlargement harbors many
dangers for the stability and the economic and social cohesion of the EU and
her state-members if conditions do not exist for the preparation of the candidate
countries and the EU, and if provisions are not made for the forecasting
and confronting of such consequences.
