The impact of the Phenomenon of Enlargement on the Legislative procedure in European Union
Midulová, Katarína ; Klíma, Michal (advisor) ; Faturová, Marie (referee)
The thesis evaluates legislation procedure of the European Union, its dynamics and effectiveness in regard to enlargement. The aim of this thesis is to assess to what extent the decision-making procedure got complicated and whether it is necessary to reform the whole system as a consequence of new members' adhesion. This paper focuses on current decision-making rules as well as the changes which brought this procedure to this status -- the reform activity during 1990s. The purpose of these reforms along with other aims was to prepare the EU institutions for the biggest enlargement they have ever experienced. These changes proved to be what helped to eliminate the consequences which could the new members with diverse priorities bring to the decision-making process. In spite of worries which preceded the Eastern enlargement, the institutions continue to work well, however, their workload has increased and there is a widespread belief that the next enlargement requires more reforms.
