Respect must be earned and if we want to maintain confidence in us, we must do what we said we would do - inside and out," External link

Florian Bieber concludes: “While there are certainly some economic benefits, they are incomparable to EU accession. Thus, Mini-Schengen should be seen as a positive move towards regional cooperation and integration, nothing more and nothing less.

It does not offer a meaningful replacement for EU accession and this needs to be clear in the region and the EU member states,” External link
