This article examines the case for the development of a post-Balkan strategy for European Union enlargement specifically focused on the Black Sea. It argues that in light of recent events in Georgia, and concerns over political stability in the Ukraine, such a move would represent a clear statement in support of their integration into Euro- Atlantic structures. However, such a move would also have an extremely beneficial effect on Turkey’s accession process. By virtue of its pivotal role in such a strategy, many of the concerns that currently exist within the EU over Turkish membership would be mitigated.
