Abstract: This article deals with the current issues of the development of European economic integration in terms of the level of governance in Member States of the European Union. The differences in the level of governance impact the countries’ ability to act as a whole and to achieve convergence. This article is devoted to the analysis of governance in the EU. First, the status of governance of Member States was evaluated; then, we examined whether there has been a reduction in the disparity since the 2004 EU enlargement. We have also summarized the existing heterogeneity in EU indicators and the basic data concerning economic, political and social variables as part of the governance. In the second part, the analysis of the results was carried out. The main task of this chapter was to closely examine how homogenous/heterogenous Member States are. Finally, the actual status of the level of governance of the EU was explained in the conclusions.
