Summary/Abstract: Abstract: The recent rejection of the Lisbon Treaty by the majority of the Irish voters could possibly initiate a dynamic, seriously threatening the processes of European inte-gration as well as EU-enlargement. Facing a rather euro-skeptic population and a chal-lenging European environment, the incumbent Croatian government has no choice but to continue with accession talks while also attempting to complete accession negotiations as quickly as possible, in order to present Croatia as a country that could be easily inte-grated into the EU. It would likewise be necessary for the government to proceed with structural reforms in specific policy areas, and to cope with such comprehensive tasks as battling corruption, de-politicizing while also bolstering the judiciary, building the nec-essary capacity in public administration, and improving local governance.
