Summary/Abstract: The measures adopted by the European Institutions with regard to the Central and Eastern European countries show inconsistencies or deviations from an assumed road. At the time of European integration, it was more likely that countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania would attract institutionalized responses to the rule of law. Finally, the natural question is: are there incompatibilities between the European model of the capitalist democracy and the countries formerly ruled behind the Iron Curtain? Is the gap between "model adoption" and "model adaptation" so big that it separates us from the original model? In fact, what exactly in the history of these peoples, their national specificity or their concerns puts them in a situation of model departure?
