Strasbourg, 30th October 2014
Taking an official five-year break from enlargement may prove detrimental for the process that has been a “historic success bringing peace and stability to our continent”. Keeping it high on the agenda rather than announcing such a discouraging declaration that all the deadlines are over the present Commissioner’s mandate, would have brought more benefits to both enlargement and accession sides of the medal. There are many more pros to keeping the momentum of strengthening the democratic legitimacy of integration process in the Western Balkan countries, particularly having in mind the need for overcoming the most severe financial and economic crisis since the WW2 and that can be condensed in only three words clearly stated in newly elected Commission President’s statement: Experience, Solidarity and Future.
Many would agree that the Experience of adding 13 countries in 10 years has brought forward the enlargement policy as one of the biggest success stories of the EU.
The principle of Solidarity was reinforced through “Agenda for Jobs, Growth, Fairness and Democratic Change” whereas concentrating on the areas where the EU is able to make a real difference including inter alia creation of knowledge based society to a large extent encompasses a newly emerging young, qualified and skilled labour market in both EU MS and the acceding countries.
Future enlargement needs to be constructed on consistent efforts aimed to strengthen the confidence in shared values and vision of the European project rather than solely on conditionality or making the breaks in one of the most successful EU policies.
