Summary/Abstract: The author reviews the enlargement perspectives of the EU highlighting the significant transformation from a ‘continent of wars’ to a ‘continent of peace’. The European perspective is challenged in the recent years but the enlargement policy is the strongest tool the EU could use to exercise its influence and stimulate the democratic development among its neighbours. The article outlines Turkey and the Western Balkans as two potential geostrategic directions for enlargement.
