The Mysterious Black Box of Europe’s Expansion

Abstract: In 6 April 1994 the then Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana was killed when his plane crashed near Kigali, the Rwandan capital. In 10 March 2004 , just a few weeks preceding the 10 th anniversary of Rwanda ‘s genocide, the eminent French newspaper Le Monde published an article revealing, inter alia , that the black box had been clandestinely held in UN headquarters during all this time. After a few days of constant denials, the UN spokesman, Fred Eckhard, eventually acknowledged the existence of a mysterious black box, which had been negligently sunk in oblivion for the last decade. Even now, nobody seems to know what information exactly the black box contain or how useful can it be for enlightening the disastrous saga of the Rwandan genocide. Likewise the issue of Europe ‘s enlargement is today another mysterious black box awaiting its discovery from the French or other Europeans. Presently, nobody can truly foresee how and under what conditions the issue of Europe’s expansion will develop, i.e., which the next member states will be and under what conditions will they ultimately enter into the European Union.
