Summary/Abstract: The dynamic character of the European construction process determined numerous situations that could be considered as enough strained in order to ask for new approaches from the part of communitarian decision-makers and of the Member States too. The enlargement of the European Communities/European Union is one of the sources of communitarian dynamic character and represented an almost permanent process, although it was never related to a precise schedule. Initially given to the Cold War, and later both to internal problems of EU and to some external difficult realities, enlargement of the European Communities/Union raised every time new priorities both for communitarian general body and for the members states. Both parties had all the time to find the more appropriate solutions to all the new burdens generated by enlargement, solutions materialised in new approaches of different situations, new politics, new strategies, and/or new attitudes towards each other.
