Organising for EU Enlargement A Challenge for the Member States and the Candidate Countries, Final Report

Project ID: HPSE-CT-2001-00083


The conduct of the research project for the six month period October 2002 to March 2003 involved four objectives:
1. The editing and preparation for publication of the research findings and comparative material on the management of EU business by the core executives in the six states under consideration in this project.
2. The collection of data and its analysis in respect to the micro case studies identified by each research partner.
3. The preparation of a comparative report based on the findings of the micro case studies 'Negotiating European Issues: National Strategies and Priorities'
4. The finalisation of the research framework for Phase II of the project.
Objectives 2 and 4 have been completed while objectives 1 and 3 are nearing completion. It was decided at the project Management Board meeting in January 2003 that the full texts of the national reports and a set of occasional papers for the macro study on the national core executive management of EU business should be posted in the public area of the project web site and published in printed form. This has involved comprehensive editing and some redrafting but the material is now ready for publication in June 2003. The individual micro case studies have been completed and the comparative report is in the final stage of preparation, some editing will be required before this material is ready for distribution. The research framework and schedule for Phase II of the project (regional and environmental policy, see item 3 of this report) was decided on at the project Management Board meeting in January 2003. The reports, on the first stage of this research, have been submitted by the project partners.
