Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of first part of this book, which examines the foundations of the European integration of Cyprus through its Europeanisation. Very few studies have looked at the European Union (EU) membership of Cyprus as a process within the wider context of European integration, envisaging the Cyprus problem as a component of such a process rather than as an outcome in itself. Even EU enlargement literature is seldom concerned with Cyprus more specifically. The ongoing Europeanisation of the island nevertheless points to a particular process of European integration, guided by issues arising out of an unsolved conflict within the EU, where economic governance through the rules of the Internal Market plays a central role. Theories on EU integration may be too focused on "vertical integration between EU and national level, the design effects of formal rules and the nature of national structures and processes".

Keywords: Cyprus; economic governance; European Union (EU); Europeanisation; internal market
