Abstract: Although there has been some research in older EU member states into the impact of European integration processes on national party politics and Western scholars (particularly Robert Ladrech and Peter Mair) have developed theoretical frameworks for such research, this field is still under-researched. The 2004 EU enlargement has brought about a new wave of such research. However, these endeavours involving new EU member states' domestic experts tend to be more or less the products of book projects or special journal issue projects and have not been based on research projects as usually understood (e.g. volumes edited by Susanne Jungerstam-Mulders in 2006, by Lewis and Mansfeldová in 2006, by Fink-Hafner and Ladrech 2008, by Lewis and Markowski, 2011). The book edited by Tim Haughton continues this tradition and expresses the high committment of both a few leading authors' from older EU members (and one from the U.S.) and more numerous collaborators from the recent EU member states.
