The Golden Straitjacket of Poland’s Membership in the EU
Languages of publication
This article aims to evaluate the fi rst decade of Poland’s membership in the European Union. The analysis covers three major aspects: modernisation of the economy, state administration, and shaping a democratic political system. The article attempts to show that the processes of EU integration resemble a ‘golden straitjacket’ – a garment that seems desirable and even resplendent, but turns out to be a constraint on freedom.
