Abstract: The European Council meeting on 16-17 December took many decisions that will set the course for the European Union’s continuing enlargement process. These decisions concern in the first place Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Turkey, but they also contain some pointers for the nature of the process ahead that will concern other possible candidates, from the Balkans to Ukraine. This new Policy Brief explores the new language and concepts introduced into the discussion and their implications for the European Neighbourhood Policy.
