It does not want to join. Just under half of the countries in Europe are not members of the organisation that is known as the European Union. A lot of them do not want to join. Belarus is one of those countries.
Some do not want to join. Some have not met the criteria needed to join. Some have applied and will join in the future.

They most likely do not see the need to join as they think they can prosper more so on their own and the EU will just drag them down. This idea is somewhat becoming widespread, as the EU deals with its massive economic problems. However, this doesn't quite wave a red flag for all European countries, as the EU is looking to expand to help its economic problems. Currently, all European countries with the exception… Read More

I know that Turkey wants membership but the EU doesn't want to admit it because it is largely a Muslim state and it would provide an influx of cheap labor into the EU which would in turn lower wages for the average EU worker. Croatia and Macedonia are also candidate countries
Barcelona is a Spanish city. Only sovereign countries can join the EU. Spain is a member of the EU.
Countries that are located in Europe or are considered Europeanized countries can join the European Union. Europeanized countries are countries whose culture is adopted from Europe and that have a large European population. For example, Iceland, Norway, or the Ukraine can join the EU since they are all located in Europe, and thus are European countries. But the United States, Canada, or Israel could also join the EU since they are all Europeanized countries. They… Read More
They joined the EU in 2004 on the 1st of may. Since then they have been added to the list of EU countries.
Countries join the European Union because they believe it will be beneficial for them in the future. They think it will bring about a stronger economy, improved foreign relations, etc. The EU also has free trade and free travel within its boundaries, which is another reason why countries join the EU.
The European Union is currently in economic downturn. However, despite this, almost all European countries (with the exception of Switzerland) plan on joining the European Union in the future.
Moldava, Macedonia, Croatia, Turkey, the Ukraine, Iceland, Switzerland, Andorra, San Marino, and i think Norway has no choice.
Eastern European countries need to adopt more Western values to join the EU. These countries have already been doing so since the breakup of the Soviet Union.

The economy would most likely grow and the EU would become more powerful.
It joined along with 9 other countries in May 2004.
No countries joined the EU in 2010. Before 2010, Romania and Bulgaria were the newest, joining in 2007.
Three countries joined the EU in 1995: Austria, Finland, and Sweden.
Switzerland is not in the EU, so it doesn't have the option to join the Euro.

It was the beginning of the EEC which soon developed to the EU, it was signed by the first countries to join.
Currently there are 2 countries who have intensified talks to be part of the European Union. These countries are the Ukraine and Croatia.
The EU is just the European Union. Any countries of Europe can apply to receive EU membership if they qualify. The EU (or Euro) zone is the collection of member countries which share the currency the Euro. The Euro is now compulsory for all EU members, except the UK and Denmark which have opted out but may join in the future.
It is independent and like many countries in Europe, it does not want to join the European Union. It does have strong relations with the European Union and has many agreements with them around things like trade.
No. Georgia is neither in the EU nor in the Schengen area. It is geographically separated from the EU and the Schengen area, so is unlikely to join either in the near future.
Of the countries that were eligible to join the first wave in 1999, Denmark decided in a referendum to not join. Sweden is obligated to join because it joined the EU after the Maastrict treaty but deliberately avoids the convergence criteria. The UK is not obligated to join and the current UK government seems to have no plans for a referendum. Slovenia, Malta and Cyprus have since joined the Euro and the other 14 EU… Read More
With all the benefits to the EU you still find countries that do not want to join. I find that there are two types of countries which don't want to join the EU. The first types are nations that have substantially higher standards of living then the rest of the EU. The EU would be detrimental to their country and lower the standard of living because countries in the EU that aren't as successful would… Read More

Albania did not join the EU.
Monaco did not join the EU.

They joined what was then called the EEC in 1973. It would be up to the British people to decide if they want to leave it. All EU countries would have some people in them that would not want to be in the EU, but it has been beneficial for most countries and so the majority of people and the governments in those countries want to stay as members. There are things even the supporters… Read More
It was formed to restore peace in the countries of Europe. Of course, not all countries have joined, but not all have the right roads and money that is needed to join. There are 27 countries so far, and I believe that Iceland is currently trying to join.
No Only the Countries that Paid to Join, Only more or less the richer european countries are allowed e.g the UK
Actually there are 4 now they are Croatia, Iceland, Macedonia, and Turkey
Croatia in 2013 and Bulgaria and Romania, both in 2007.
At the present time (Sept. 13, 2011) the nation of Greece seems to be on the verge of bankruptcy, which would be very bad for the EU. It is not clear that any new country would even want to join the EU in its current state of financial uncertainty. If the finances are ever fixed, then it would seem to be possible for new countries to join the EU with no problem - as long… Read More
