Chapter Chapter 1 in Does EU Membership Facilitate Convergence? The Experience of the EU's Eastern Enlargement - Volume I, 2021, pp 1-24 from Palgrave Macmillan
Abstract Starting on 1st of May 2004, 11 countries in Central-Eastern and South Eastern Europe and in the Baltics (EU11) joined the European Union in three consecutive waves. Half a generation later, and a full generation after the start of transition in the region, we thought it would be opportune to look into the convergence experience of these countries. The two volumes of this book offer a collection of contributions on this matter.
