One decade onwards: assessing the impact of European Union membership on Bulgaria and Romania

Surubaru, Neculai-Cristian; Nitoiu, Cristian


Cristian Nitoiu


The main aim of this Special Issue is to critically analyse the impact of the EU on Bulgaria and Romania, during their first decade as members of the European community, in several poignant areas of membership. The rationale for this endeavour is twofold. On the one hand, very few studies have looked in depth at the post-enlargement experience of the two countries and how the EU factor has played out and influenced various domestic policies and issues, ranging from national policies to the rule of law. On the other hand, there is little knowledge regarding the way the two countries experience EU membership or deal with their counterparts in Brussels.
