Abstract In this paper I investigate the voting behaviour in the Council of the European Union between January 2006and February 2009, i.e. immediately before and after the accesion of Romania and Bulgaria. In order to do so I havecoded the results of the 339 codecision votes that took place during the period of reference and applied variousmultidimensional scaling methods that commonly used for the analysis of voting behaviour in legislatures: metricscaling, W-Nominate, Heckman-Snyder, and optimal classification. The results of the analysis tell us about the relativeviability of the different methods in the EU context and provide us with a preliminary ideological map that representsthe ideological positions of Romania and Bulgaria vis -a-vis the other member states of the EU.
