LEITBILDER (key concepts) for the European Union after Enlargement.

Fragmentation, Continuity or Reinvention?
Will the enlarged European Union, the EU-27, be based upon a consistent set of ideas and key concepts (LEITBILDER) in so-called "old" and "new" member states, or will it be characterized by fragmentation? Will Western and Central-Eastern EU-member states share the same set of basic political beliefs, convictions, ideas, concepts and visions of Europe or are they developing in different directions? Are the member states' actors supporting further deepening of European integration or do they rather promote less integration which could lead to a dilution of the Union? Last but not least, do we probably observe a reinvention of key concepts (LEITBILDER) for the future EU resulting from a growing heterogeneity among political actors' views?
