"This informative book provides an in-depth study of Cyprus' efforts to join the European Union. It examines the various steps taken towards harmonization in various contexts, the suitability of the country for EU accession, and the political problems surrounding the Cypriot EU accession. Constantin Stefanou also broadens the scope to consider the wider issues surrounding EU accession negotiations for applicant countries, especially with reference to the new and untested EU guidelines. The volume will be of great value to those interested in Europe and the European Union in general, and European Law and the development of Cyprus in particular."--Provided by publisher.
