Abstract: For several reasons, the "Eastern" enlargement of the European Union can be considered unique. However, the most important factors of this enlargement process are not just those that have generally been emphasized in the "old" member countries and that, unfortunately and absolutely unjustified, in the last period, happened to become part of the populist arguments put forward not only by smaller status-quo-oriented groups but by "responsible" politicians of several EU countries alike. This paper tries to identify some of the strategic changes Europe in general, and the European integration in particular, has to face not only as a result of the ongoing enlargement process but, more importantly, as participant and active player in the globalizing economy.
