Pioneer Europe ? Testing EU Foreign Policy in the Neighbourhood
This study looks at the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) as a capability test for the European Union (EU) to become a coherent and in. uential international actor. The resulting picture is an ambivalent EU, experimenting policies with civilian means rather than pursuing a clearly defined finalité.
Prefaced by Jacques Rupnik, the volume gathers empirical and theoretical contributions to analyze the intermingled policy ideas, actors and levels of the ENP. It will be of interest to students and scholars of European Studies, International Relations and Foreign Policy Analysis.
Laure Delcour (IRIS, Paris) and Elsa Tulmets (IIR, Prague) are both analysts of the ENP and European foreign policy.
This volume, edited by Laure Delcour and Elsa Tulmets, provides a most valuable contribution to our understanding of ENP as a defining moment for the future of the European project and EU’s role as an actor on the international scene
