The Influence of European Integration Process outside EU borders Natalia Timuş, Central European University, Budapest



The present study makes a step further in Europeanization research by advancing a theoretical framework that examines the influence of the European integration process on domestic developments of different groups of non-member states. It includes the major variables highlighted in Europeanization literature and the works on democratic transition of EU outsiders, particularly from the post-communist space and addresses the questions of how and why the European integration process influences domestic changes outside its borders. It provides a classification of possible mechanisms and outcomes of the Europeanization process according to the potential variation of the type of EU involvement, depending on the extent and nature of EU pressure and the clearness of EU level policies, and the degree of domestic engagement in implementing European requirements. The work examines not only the cases of direct and indirect EU involvement, but also the potential theoretical instruments and outcomes of Europeanization in cases where the stimulus – European Union – is missing from the picture. Key words:- Europeanization of non-member states, European integration, democratization, domestic transformations. Address for Correspondence:
