At first, it was believed that accession to the EU would have a positive effect on the process of democratization in former communist countries. However, over time it became clear that difficulties with the democratic system endured in a number of these countries. This book reconsiders the results of the process of democratization in Central and Eastern Europe and evaluates the nature and effectiveness of the Europeanization process. It comparatively explores the process of democratic consolidation and accession to the European Union in Poland, Slovakia and Bulgaria. Using these case studies, the book assesses the impact of the EU on the accountability and integrity of governments in this part of Europe. This text will be of key interest to scholars and students of democratization studies, European studies, EU studies, transition studies, area studies, and international relations.

Das Ziel des Buches ist, den Zusammenhängen auf den Grund zu gehen. Im Vordergrund stehen dabei folgende Aspekte: Wie kann man sich die beachtliche Zunahme umweltpolitischer Aktivitäten auf europäischer Ebene erklären? Was sind die zentralen Inhalte und Steuerungsmuster der EU-Umweltpolitik? Wie ist es um ihre Leistungsfähigkeit und Wirksamkeit bestellt? Welche Faktoren beeinflussen ihre Formulierung und Implementation? Welche Möglichkeiten gibt es, die Umsetzung europäischer Vorgaben auf der nationalen Ebene zu verbessern?
