DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Drawing from rationalist and constructivist approaches The Europeanization of Cyprus identifies mechanisms and processes of Europeanization and examines their impact on the following key dimensions of Cyprus: executive, legislative and judicial authorities; political parties and public opinion; economy; agriculture and regional policy; foreign policy; and justice and home affairs. It also assesses how the territorial and temporal dimensions of the country have mediated the impact of these mechanisms and processes, and ultimately shaped the country's Europeanization experience. The book provides a deep understanding of the relations between Cyprus and the EU, while also enhancing our theoretical understanding of the impact of Europeanization on states, whether inside or outside the EU.

Reviews

'...as a study of the mechanics of adaptation and the formal relationship between Cyprus and the European Union, and as a reference for the technical aspects of accession, the work is extremely valuable. Likewise, as a case study of 'Europeanization', the work is undoubtedly a contribution to the academic literature. The author has provided a solid account of the main ways in which the Republic of Cyprus has sought to manage the process of accession and membership.' - James Ker-Lindsay, The Round Table
 
'This is an important book for the public policy and European studies scholars as well as for Southern Europe specialists.' - Stella Ladi - University of Sheffield, Public Administration vol. 88
