Abstract: For nearly 60 years, the EU member states have continued to deepen and enrich their cooperation. In the course of the European integration, they pledged to promote economic and social progress in developing an area of freedom, security and justice and to affirm the role of the European Union on the international stage. We often tend to oppose, into the public opinion, the idea of enlargement, which defines the accession of new Member States, to the deepening, synonymous with ever closer integration between members belonging to the Union. Some fear, in fact, with increasing the number of the EU Member States that impede the further enlargement of the European construction, making it more like a large trading area, without identity or political will.1 Internal transfers allow us to believe that "enlargement and deepening are the two wheels of the same carriage, those of the continuation of European integration."
