Examine the Constitution and the Citizenship Laws of the Republic of Cyprus.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "The Constitution for Europe and an Enlarging Union - Unity in Diversity" to their offering.

This collection of essays brings together a selection of the many papers delivered at a young researcher seminar held in Warsaw in July 2004 with the funding and support of the European Commission. The book is divided into three parts:

- Constitutionalisation and integration;

- Differentiation in EU law and policy;

- The policy tool of conditionality in the EU's external relations.

Working within this framework, the contributions have been selected according to their relevance. The book provides a useful launch pad for further research and discussion on a twelve topics of central importance to the Constitution and enlargement, at a time when the Union continues to extend its borders while at the same deepening its integration efforts and seeking new means to do so.

Under the heading of Constitutionalisation and Integration, the first four chapters consider the implications of formalising European constitutionalism through the Constitution for Europe, look at how the Constitution contributes to democracy, transparency and efficiency in the Union, explore the role of the national parliaments under the Constitution and, finally, examine the institutional changes and balance in the Union in an enlarged Union, including as a result of the Constitutions provisions.

The second part, dedicated to topics in differentiation in EU law and policy, focus on the areas of Economic and Monetary Union, the Common Agricultural Policy and EU counter-terrorism following enlargement as well as on the status of Turkish Cypriots in regard to EU citizenship. The third and final part of the book concentrates on the conditionality used by the Union in respect of countries waiting in the wings to join the Union, specifically concentrating on the issue of minority protection as well as the democratisation process in Turkey.
