Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with a short introduction into the context and the legal framework of the accession process to the European Union (EU) and addresses the question of identification and the specific characteristics of the EMU acquis as part of the EU accession acquis. It gives a general overview about the status of the different categories of Member States from the viewpoint of full integration and participation in the EMU. The chapter discusses the issue of the de lege lata and de lege ferenda legal consequences of the global economic and financial crisis on the development of the EU acquis and the related completion process of the EMU acquis. It analyses the different options for legal transition for the acceding new Member States from a pre-as well as post-accession EMU preparation into the full participation in the eurozone of the EU. The chapter provides some concluding remarks.
