The issues include the comparative advantage of CEEC agriculture and its development under various accession policy scenarios- the likely policy developments in both the CEECs and the EU, based on economic, social and political economy considerations- the expected economic impacts and adjustment costs for the agro-food sector under various policy outcomes- the most important constraints for integration including policy convergence issues and internal constraints- and how integration will potentially affect trade and labour flows in the Union. The country combines detailed country-specific and region-wide empirical and theoretical analysis.
