EU enlargement, the CAP and the cost of direct payments: a note

Article English OPEN
Ackrill, RW (2003)

Negotiations over EU enlargement have highlighted difficulties in extending the CAP – and in particular direct payments - to the applicant countries, given the spending limits agreed in Berlin in 1999. This note presents estimates of direct payment costs in the Eastern European applicants. It argues that the only way all member states in an enlarged EU can receive the same level of payments is if the payments currently prevailing in the EU15 are reduced.
