Chapter Summary

The recent and forthcoming enlargement has led to consideration of institutional transformation of the European Union (EU) due to its plan to agree accession of a great number of new Member States. With the entry into force of the Amsterdam Treaty, the field of "Visas, asylum, immigration and other policies related to free movement of persons" came under the first pillar, in the form of European Community law, under Title IV of the EC Treaty (Articles 61-69). The values underlying the Amsterdam Treaty and the Tampere European Council Presidency conclusions are encapsulated in the upper cited phrase, "area of freedom, security and justice" that implies much greater emphasis on legal and political rights and benefits to the European citizens than was the case in previous justice and home affairs co-operation, which emphasized security.
