Abstract

This chapter examines the determinants of support for integration into the European Union (EU) by citizens in Hungary, Bulgaria, and the Ukraine. It asks the following questions: Do individuals’ attitudes regarding NATO membership build support for the enlargement of the EU? That is, can positive or negative experience with one international organization provide a reservoir of “good will” (Easton 1975) for another international organization? Although some analyses posit that NATO membership provides a positive reservoir for EU expansion (Kostadinova 2000), we know surprisingly little about this linkage.
