It shows the growth of the European Union and its predecessors through enlargement from six members in 1952 to twenty-seven members in 2007; as of 2007, at least seven (possibly even more) are expected to join in its future.

In addition to the current twenty-seven member states, a number of other countries are expected to join the European Union in the next two decades. Croatia, the Republic of Macedonia and Turkey are officially candidate countries; Croatia and Turkey are currently in accession negotiations,[6] while negotiations with the Republic of Macedonia are expected to start in 2007.[7] The remaining states in the Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia, including Kosovo under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of 10 June 1999) are officially "potential candidate countries", which means they have a clear perspective for accession over the course of the next decade.[8] Image File history File links European_Union_member_states_with_applications. ...

The European Union's Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn originally stated that the next enlargement after Bulgaria and Romania would only happen after 2010, due to the European Union's need to sort out its institutional problems first,[9] the European Commission's President José Manuel Durão Barroso later stated that the provisions in the Treaty of Nice were clear enough; while he considered institutional reform necessary, it was not intended to be a stumbling bloc for countries seeking to join the European Union.[10] However, on 25 September 2006 (the day before the accession date of Bulgaria and Romania was officially made public), Barroso stated that a new treaty would be necessary before further enlargement could occur.[11] The European Commission (formally the Commission of the European Communities) is the executive body of the European Union. ...

Armenia,[21][22] Georgia,[23] Moldova[24][25] and Ukraine[26][27][28][29] have stated they would like to join the European Union; however, the European Union's response was lukewarm at best.[30] European Union membership is also the subject of political debate in Andorra,[31][32] Azerbaijan,[33] the Faroe Islands,[34] Iceland,[35] Liechtenstein[36] and San Marino,[37] and the debates in Norway[38] and Switzerland[39] are also still ongoing. While Belarus[40] and Russia[41] are also seen as eligible to join, and while accession to the European Union enjoys public support in Belarus,[42] the lack of democratic structures makes these countries' accession impossible in the short term, especially as the European Union is supporting the Belarussian opposition and civil society in peacefully overthrowing Alexander Lukashenko's regime, which it regards as dictatorial,[43][44] going so far as to offer concrete benefits for democratic reforms.[45][46][47] Furthermore, the European Union is trying to bind Russia more strongly to its own policies and goals through partnership and cooperation agreements.[48] Aleksandr Grigoryevich Lukashenko or Alyaksandar Ryhoravich Lukashenka (Belarusian: , Russian: ) (born August 30, 1954 at Kopys, Vitebsk voblast) has been the President of Belarus since 1994. ...

Non-European countries

Although the Treaty of Maastricht states that only European countries may apply, a number of countries not generally considered European have also considered membership bids. The Maastricht Treaty (formally, the Treaty on European Union) was signed on 7 February 1992 in Maastricht between the members of the European Community and entered into force on 1 November 1993, under the Delors Commission. ...


The island nation of Cape Verde, part of the island region Macaronesia (which is comprised of Cape Verde, the Portuguese islands of the Azores and Madeira and the Spanish Canary Islands) has stated it wishes to join the European Union.[49][50][51] Israel has considered applying for membership;[52] while the European Union and Israel share a common culture, history and society, the ongoing Arab-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian conflicts and Israel's location in one of the most conflict-ridden regions of the world would be major arguments against its accession. Finally, even Canada's accession has occasionally been proposed, though often rather in a tongue-in-cheek manner;[53] the main arguments used are the very similar cultural standards and viewpoints on matters of international law, especially when juxtaposed with those of the United States. None of the three countries is a member of the Council of Europe, which is a de facto prerequisite for membership under the Copenhagen criteria and the Treaty of Maastricht.

It is generally expected that the states of southeastern Europe will be the next states to join the European Union, and that it will still take some time for Iceland, Norway and Switzerland to join, since public opinion is not yet in favour in those three states. Although Olli Rehn said on 19 May 2006 that he expected Iceland to join the European Union before Croatia would,[54][55] he went back on his statement when he stated on 1 December 2006 that Croatia would likely become the European Union's 28th member state.[56] Balkan peninsula with northwest border Isonzo-Krka-Sava The Balkans is the historic and geographic name used to describe a region of southeastern Europe. ...

Timeline

Notes

A : Under the provisions of the Antarctic Treaty System, the territorial claims of France and the United Kingdom (Adélie Land and the British Antarctic Territory, respectively) have been frozen (along with the claims made by five other states) since 23 June 1961; consequently, ISO 3166-1 catalogues the whole of Antarctica as international territory under the code ATA since 1979. However, European Union treaties (e.g. the proposed Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe in its Annex II[65]) nonetheless list those territories as associated with the European Union.
B : The communes of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin decided (in referenda held on 7 December 2003) to become separate overseas collectivities (French: collectivités d'outre-mer or COM). This change will be implemented in early 2007; Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin will thereby change in status from being integral parts of the European Union to become associated territories (like Greenland).[66]
C : The local politics of French Polynesia are dominated by the dichotomy of independence vs. continued relations with France;[67] while independence has officially been recognised as a possibility by President Jacques Chirac, he and some local politicians remain sceptical.[68]
D : The Nouméa Accord, which was signed on 5 May 1998 and put to a referendum in New Caledonia on 8 November 1998 (which succeeded with 72 per cent support), gives New Caledonia the right to hold an independence referendum between 2014 and 2018.[69]
E : After 2010, Mayotte's General Council (French: Conseil Général) can propose further evolution of its status, with the likely result of Mayotte becoming the fifth overseas department (French: département d'outre-mer) of France.[70]
F : The Netherlands Antilles will be restructured on 15 December 2008. Curaçao and Sint Maarten will become countries inside the Kingdom of the Netherlands (together with Aruba and the Netherlands per se). Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius will become part of the Netherlands as the Kingdom Islands, and will thereby also become part of the European Union.[71]
G1 2 : On 3 October 1990, Flag of East Germany East Germany joined Flag of West Germany West Germany through the process of German reunification; since then, the reunited Flag of Germany Germany has been a single member state.[72]
H : After World War II (during which the Faroe Islands were under British occupation) the Faroe Islands had already held a referendum on independence on 14 September 1946, which turned out 48.7 per cent to 47 per cent in favour. They declared independence on 18 September 1946; however, this declaration was annulled by Denmark on 20 September 1946. As a reaction to the growing self-government and independence movements, Denmark granted the Faroe Islands home-rule on 30 March 1948.[73] A second independence referendum which had been scheduled for 26 May 2001[74] was postponed when it became clear that the Danish government would only continue to give financial aid for four more years if the referendum turned out to be in favour of independence.[75]
I : There is strong support for independence among Greenland's population.[76] However, a referendum initially planned in 2003 to be held before 2006[77] had been postponed to an unknown date due to an unanticipated early election. Denmark and Greenland established a joint commission to draft a report on possibilities for Greenland to achieve greater independence, which is set to be submitted in September 2007.
J : In Bermuda,[78] Montserrat[79] and in the Turks and Caicos Islands,[80] there is strong support for eventual independence from the United Kingdom; the British government has stated that it is prepared to back and encourage any of its current Caribbean overseas territories which wishes to attain independence.[81] Support for independence is less prevalent in Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands,[82] and the Cayman Islands have repeatedly stated that they are strongly against becoming independent at the current time.[83][84]
As far as the non–Caribbean overseas territories are concerned, the Falkland Islands consider independence a long–term option,[85] while neither Saint Helena[86] nor the Pitcairn Islands[87] are currently considering independence. The British Indian Ocean Territory and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have no native population, though the Ilois (who had been removed from the British Indian Ocean Territory in 1966) have been granted the right to return by the British High Court of Justice on 3 November 2000 and again on 11 May 2006, overturning an Order-in-Council which was meant to overrule the court's earlier decision.[88] Furthermore, the United Kingdom assured Flag of Mauritius Mauritius that it would hand over the British Indian Ocean Territory once it was not needed any longer for military reasons.[89] The United States' lease for the military base on Diego Garcia expires in 2016, although there is an option for the extension of the agreement until 2036.
K1 2 : The UK Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri (Ακρωτήρι/Agrotur) and Dhekelia (Δεκέλεια/Dikelya) on Cyprus did not join the European Union when the United Kingdom joined, and Cyprus' Accession Treaty specifically stated that this would not change with the accession of Cyprus to the European Union. The proposed Annan Plan for Cyprus had included a provision for the United Kingdom to cede 117 km² of the Sovereign Base Areas' 254 km² to the United Cyprus Republic.[90]
L : Officially, the whole island is part of the European Union and Turkish Cypriots are citizens of the European Union. Since the Greek Cypriot side rejected the Annan Plan for the reunification of the southern part and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in a referendum on 24 April 2004, however, European Union law is only applied in the southern part currently. Had the referendum been in favour on both sides of the island, Cyprus, Northern Cyprus and the UN Buffer Zone would have joined the European Union together as the United Cyprus Republic. Talks on resolving the Cyprus dispute restarted in July 2006 under United Nations supervision;[91][92] Cypriot reunification is supported by the European Union.[93]
M1 2 : As the result of a naming dispute with Greece, the Republic of Macedonia is officially referred to as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) by the European Union.[94] Negotiations on the issue are still underway under United Nations supervision, and are expected to gain speed after the Macedonian parliamentary election was held on 5 July 2006.[95][96]
N : Including Kosovo under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of 10 June 1999.[97] The future status of Kosovo is currently being negotiated between the Serbs and the Kosovo Albanians in talks held in Vienna under the supervision of the United Nations, with the Kosovo Albanians demanding full independence and the Serbs rejecting anything more than complete autonomy.[98] A final decision is expected in February or March 2007, now that the Serbian parliamentary election has been held on 21 January 2007.[99]
