Since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, the processes of political and economic reform in Central and Eastern Europe and Western efforts to support these processes have attracted considerable attention from scholars. The goal of extending the West's liberal democratic order to this region has not been fully coherent with the West's and, especially, the EU's own political, economic, and security interests, but also with the sense of moral duty and historic responsibility acquired during 50 years of division and Soviet occupation. To bring these countries back to the Europe which they have always belonged and to integrate them into those Western institutions which best reflect the West's commitment to a liberal democratic order has, therefore, been one of the main challenges facing Western policymakers in the 1990s. This process is the key concern of this book, which rather than a study of the way reformers in Central and Eastern Europe have attempted to pilot the return to the West, is concerned with Western efforts, and more precisely, the European Union's efforts to bring these countries back to Europe.
