Country: the French Republic

Delegate: Ilka Rodriguez

Topic A: Revising the Copenhagen and EU Accession Criteria


The interconnectedness, and interdependence between member states in the European Union has made this organization complex in its nature, and questions about accession are constantly a hot topic. Over the last three decades, the European Union has had the largest increase in membership.[1]The enlargement of the organization has brought changes for new member states, as membership meant progress in democratic processes and economic stability. This change has also had effects on the founding states of the Treaty of Rome in 1957. The French Republic is one of these founding states. It has been affected with issues such as the uncountable amount of migrants[2], which has brought about changes in the country, but also debates within the European Union.
