This essay focuses on the degree to which Maltese foreign policy has become Europeanized because of its membership in the European Union. The author focuses on three trends resulting from the Europeanization process: first, the ways in which Malta's national policies and political structures have become altered to meet the demands of EU membership; second, the manner in which Malta projects its own interests at the EU level; and third, the degree to which Maltese national identity has transformed since becoming an EU member state in 2004. The author then provides a brief overview of the particular national characteristics of Maltese politics.
