This edited collection provides a comprehensive analysis of the international development policies of the ten Central and Eastern European countries that joined the EU between 2004 and 2007. The contributors evaluate the decade undergone by the 'new' member states since the accession to the EU offering to readers a thorough overview of the 'new' EU member states' development cooperation programmes, placing them in a larger political and societal context. Utilizing the framework of Europeanization allows for a comparative approach that will help readers to understand the emergence and evolution of the EU-12 development cooperation through the lens of their similarities and differences. Finally, the book opens the door to critical approaches within development and European studies that question the very meaning of emulating aid policies of the EU-15 experienced donors as well as the relevance of the 'emerging' or 're-emerging' donors in the international development arena.

Available from Palgrave.
