Full title of report: Enlarging the European Union. Achievements and challenges. Report of Wim Kok, March 2003.. The Commission has considered that an independent high-level report on the consequences of enlargement should now be made, to inform and accompany the debate. Although a number of studies have been published in recent years, a comprehensive analysis, at the European level, was desirable to provide clear and authoritative answers to the many questions which are posed by the public.
Invited by Romano Prodi (Commission President) and Günter Verheugen (Commissioner for Enlargement), Mr Wim Kok accepted to chair the work of the Report. In preparing his report, Mr Kok was assisted by experts from many different countries and backgrounds. He also visited future member countries and held discussions with European non-governmental organisations. The report was prepared by the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute, Florence.
