EU Enlargement: Identities, Values and Market

Tamara Ćapeta, University of Zagreb, Croatia
Siniša Rodin, European Court of Justice, Croatia
Marise Cremona, European University Institute, Florence, Italy

Course description:

The research conference is aiming to address how EU accession affects formation of national identities and the European identity, and how such identities become integrated into European values, legal principles and legal rules. Experiences of previous accessions will be discussed as well as how European values affect candidate countries and other states still in transition that have European aspirations. Also, different understandings and visions of the internal market will be presented, and how such understandings affect legal interpretation on national and European level. We look to explore the issue to what extent have such understandings changed following the big bang enlargement, and whether evidence of change / continuity can be found in the Treaty of Lisbon and post-Lisbon developments in case law of the ECJ and institutional practice.
