The paper sheds light on the undiscovered effects of

twinning instrument. It explores whether the candidate countries

are but mere ‘importers’ of Europeanization in the

framework of institutional twinning and what the object

of importation really is. The paper is based on two main

assumptions: implementation of twinning projects enables

imposed transposition of the EU acquis and it opens

space for additional voluntary transfer of member states’

laws and institutions into candidate country’s legal and

administrative system. It may be concluded that voluntary

transposition of sophisticated objects, such as administrative

procedures and methodologies, managerial styles and

strategies and ‘ways of doing things’, is the most common

result of horizontal twinning cooperation. Practice, though,

reveals that the principle of administrative cooperation

between twinning partners is misbalanced, which disturbsthe triangular administrative model. ‘Twinners’ focus more

on transposition of institutional ‘non-acquis’ based on diverse

domestic administrative solutions than on the transfer

of legal obligations stipulated in the EU Directive.
