European union in a quandary

There is no disagreement that the European Union suffers from countinuous
crises, which are systematically portrayed in the media. Curiously, however, the
most relevant success in the Union’s recent history – its expansion to ten new
members, almost all of them in Central and Eastern Europe, finalized on May
1st, 2004 – is often overlooked. The reasons behind the crisis of the European
project’s are widely contested. Politicians, analysts, academics, and of course
governments disagree over what has brought the European Union to its current
situation. According to some, the project has advanced ahead of the will of its
citizens, who are held to be treated almost as subordinates subjects of an
“Enlightened Despotism”. Others consider that the project is no longer clear
and has become a victim of its own achievements.
