Abstract

Over the past two decades, there has been a growing interest in ‘Europeanisation’, both within and beyond the European Union (EU). The impact of Eastern enlargement in 2004 on both accession and neighbourhood states has attracted scholarly attention, and a consensus currently exists on the success of the EU’s transformative power through employing a conditionality mechanism. However, the limits of EU conditionality upon accession countries, neighbourhood ‘Europeanisation’, in addition to the problems experienced by the EU itself have brought into the question whether the end of Europeanisation research is in sight. Considering this, we critically evaluate the issues discussed in the scholarship on Europeanisation and review several points of interest in relation to EU candidate countries in the Western Balkans and Turkey.
