Title: A festival of populism:
Title (other): Slovakia after its 2004 presidential election
Abstract
Ivan Gasparovic, the controversial former president of parliament, has won the presidential election in Slovakia. In the final runoff ballot on 17 April 2004, he defeated his former political associate and former prime minister, Vladimir Meciar. Both of these politicians had been largely responsible for Slovakia's international detachment during the 1990s. As Gasparovic is being supported by the most dynamic opposition power of the populist party Smer ("Direction"), the result of the election is a warning signal for Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda's moderate-right coalition. A new axis in Slovak politics is looming on the horizon. In addition, this election is a forewarning to the newly extended European Union. The EU and many in Slovakia are ill at ease with the success of Gasparovic - a politician who had recently disregarded fundamental standards of democracy and the rule of law. Without a doubt, his election to the presidency will have consequences. The outcome of the election has shown that some populist groups and politicians have joined the EU thinking that they are capable of winning elections. The EU must decide how to deal with these members if radical, populist and euroskeptical parties come into power. Of course, such responses will need to review each case individually and must be acceptable to all EU partners. At the same time, influence should be exerted upon political groups and politicians who co-operate with radical parties. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: The Treaty of Nice and the distribution of votes in the Council - voting power consequences for the EU after the
oncoming enlargement
Abstract
The IGC 2000 had the objective to prepare the European Union for the enlargement. The aim of the present paper is to evaluate the Nice solution of the Council's decision-making rules from the perspective of the decision on the number of candidate countries which should join the EU in 2004, as proposed by the Brussels European Council in October 2002 and approved by the Copenhagen European Council in December 2002. The evaluation is based on the comparison of the Nice solution with all the relevant proposals, which were presented to the IGC 2000. The results bring an assessment of the voting power effect of both the Nice rules and the proposals. The reason for this comparison consists in the fact that these proposals represented the spectrum of approaches considered as plausible, during the last IGC and some of them much earlier. The 10 designated future EU members will be able to fully participate in the next IGC, where these proposals may be picked up again if the question of decision-making rules in the Council is reopened. The question of respective voting power consequences for the enlarged EU should be answered in this context. The evaluation of voting power consequences of individual solutions presented in this study leads to the conclusion that the distribution of voting power in the Council after the Union's enlargement to 25 members will be more even in terms of equitable representation of population of the member countries than most of other solutions proposed to the IGC. However, it is far from optimal as it disadvantages a group of smaller members to a greater degree than it disadvantages the most populous countries. Another conclusion is that the population criterion will not influence the voting power of member states after enlargement and would not be effective in any other dual weighted-majority solution.

Title: Positions of 10 Central and Eastern European countries on EU institutional reforms:
Title (other): Analytical survey in the framework of the CEEC-DEBATE project
Abstract
The paper analyses the national debate on the future of Europe in the candidate countries from Central and Eastern Europe. The positions taken by representatives of governments and national parliaments at the European Convention show that divergences in the EU integration process do not occur between new and older Member States, but in relation to the interests of each country. All Central and Eastern European countries argue for maintaining and reinforcing the community method, which would strengthen their political power and allow defending their interests in international fora. They are mostly concerned about the role and representation of small and medium sized countries in an enlarged EU. It is not possible to consider the 10 Central European countries as a homogenous group. Each country has its own political and strategic preferences and interests. At the same time, official positions of most Central European governments are similar on guiding principles such as the wish of preserving the institutional balance, maintaining the current number of institutions and ensuring more openness and transparency. On the institutions, national positions represent many similarities such as rejection of the idea of a permanent President of the European Council (with the exception of Poland) and a support for team presidency (e.g. Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia). Basically all of the applicant countries follow the same line of argumentation and their representatives have participated in common initiatives, such as the "group of 16", a joint initiative of 16 smaller and medium Member States and candidates for accession on the reform of institutions. In some cases, positions have been modelled according to or got inspired from national positions of some of the current Member States. To illustrate, the Bulgarian and the Czech proposals are very close to the Belgian position. Like some current EU Member States, including Austria, Sweden and Finland, the countries that last joined the EU

Title: Enlargement, CFSP and the Convention
Title (other): The Role of the Accession States
Abstract
The candidate countries adopted a low profile in the Convention. They were quietly supportive of most proposals on the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) front but concerned about the implications of some proposals for the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). These concerns focused on possible duplication with NATO and ensuring that the US was not marginalised by any changes. The Iraq war exposed fault lines within the present member states and caused a rift between 'old Europe' and 'new Europe'. It is unlikely that the diplomatic tensions surrounding the letters signed by certain countries during the Iraq crisis will be repeated. Lessons have been learned. Both the CFSP and the ESDP have always registered high in terms of public approval. The latest research shows that public opinion in the candidate countries is equally supportive. The challenge for the enlarged Union will be to agree on strategic priorities for the Union and to ensure that they make the best use of the new procedures in the constitutional treaty, even though they are adequate in many respects. As opposed to viewing the candidates as a burden, it is possible to argue that the new member states might be part of the solution rather than part of the problem around a CFSP. [Urheber s.

Title: Nesting Europe
Title (other): The State of European Studies and Research in Romania
Abstract
The aim of this paper is provide an overview of European studies in Romania try to offer some information and perspectives which can help both Romanian institutions and the community of scholars in gearing their policies and efforts towards a faster institutionalisation of this research area. The paper concludes that there are a number of similarities with several other EU member states and accession countries. The paper starts with a basic evaluation of the disciplinary links between political science, international relations and European studies in Romania. This is followed by a look into the patterns of co-operation between Romanian universities, both inside and outside the country. It then moves to the description of dominant approaches in studying and teaching European integration. Next is the presentation of two alternative visions on the development of European studies in Romania and in other accession countries. Special attention is given to think thanks and NGO's that focus on the EU and whose aim it is to promote the study of European integration in Romania. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: EPERN Working Paper
Abstract
Please note that the EPERN was originally launched as the Opposing Europe Research Network (OERN) but in August 2003 the Network was retitled to reflect a broadening out of the Network's research focus. EPERN Working Papers are therefore a continuation of the original OERN Working Paper Series. [according to site editor's information]
