When Malta joined the EU in 2004, Maltese society was split down the middle on the merits of this
step. For the EU this was a historic enlargement in all senses. It was the largest ever in terms of the
number of countries joining and it signalled the end of the division of Europe into two camps – or so
it was hoped. The tenth anniversary of this historic event provides sufficient reasons for us to stop a
little and take stock. For this reason the Institute for European Studies has invited a number of
Maltese scholars, specialists and professionals to contribute their analysis of the various sectors in
which they work and how these have been affected by EU membership. Our aim is to lay out a
mosaic of papers which will provide readers and followers of the Institute with a dispassionate
assessment of the main impacts of membership. The ultimate aim is to encourage citizens and
decision-makers in various walks of life and levels of society to debate Malta’s participation in the
European integration process to understand it better. The Institute wishes to make a valid
contribution on the occasion of the first decade of EU membership so that the next decade will be
even more successful than the first for the Maltese people.
