Chapter Summary

From a socio-legal perspective, European Union (EU) enlargement is characterised by a process of compliance with internationally established principles and by a policy of conditionality involving the obedience of rules "without the possibility of reasoned change". The phenomenon of Europeanisation is evidenced in the deepening and the widening of the bilateral relations between the EU and most neighbouring countries in the region. Turkey's obligations under the Association Agreement and its Additional Protocol, in particular those pertaining to the EC-Turkey customs union, constitute legal conditions per se to be fulfilled for the smooth running of the accession negotiations. As the European integration of Cyprus deepened and within the evolving context of the Internal Market including through its external dimension towards Turkey, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) can be said to have developed gradually the rules regarding the conditions of Turkish Cypriot trade with the EC/EU through mechanisms of negative integration.
