Ireland and the European Union: Nice, Enlargement and the Future of Europe
This book analyzes Ireland's relationship with the EU in the wake of Ireland's shock "No" vote to the Treaty of Nice and the major changes in the EU since enlargement. It is the first book to examine the "No" vote in detail, and to look at Ireland's engagement with the issues of enlargement and the negotiation of the draft constitution. It asks whether or not Ireland, which has long been regarded as a pro-European member-state, has changed its approach to the EU, and explores the implications and the lessons for the EU and for other member-states.
