Preaccession in Europe

Description of Preaccession

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes preaccession in the following terms: [1] In view of the large number of Central and Eastern European countries applying for membership of the EU, the European Council has adoped a general ‘preaccession strategy’. Candidates are urged to undertake an extensive legislative programme in preparation for harmonising with Community law. They are also invited to enter into a ‘structured dialogue’ with member states, so as to immerse themselves in broader policy issues.
