Elena-Simina TĂNĂSESCU, Ph.D. in Law, Professor, Romania’s Accession Process to the European Union
It is possible that Romania joins the European Union on the 1st of January 2007. Now that the relatively long and sinuous accession process is coming to its end it might be interesting to look behind in order to better understand the long that Romania has made, but also to notice the peculiarities of the latest enlargement of the European Union. Against the background of the more and more often invoked but also questioned « enlargement fatigue » it is important to capitalise the experience got through Romania’s accession if we are to imagine future scenarios for a further enlarged Europe.
