What substantive contribution has the Berlin Process made to the EU’s approach towards enlargement? How much has it helped to address these issues? Based on an assessment of its track record, what is its perspective in 2018 and beyond, in times of greater uncertainty? How does it relate to the challenges the EU faces both internally (with Brexit and prospects of differentiated integration) and externally, with an increasingly complex environment and undermined credibility as normative power? This paper explores some of these questions, focusing less on WB6 politics at the micro-level than on the EU-WB6 interface created by the Berlin Process and the changes in the enlargement policy the process induces.
