background:The neighbourhood of the European Union is currently haunted by various conflicts. In the East, Russian claims for influence trigger political insecurities that have led to war in Eastern Ukraine. The Middle East and North Africa are struggling to deal with the social changes that were triggered by the Arab Spring – some areas in Syria and Libya descended into full-blown war. While Turkey used to be a reliable mediator and intermediary to the EU’s neighbourhood, its own political situation has deteriorated seriously due to authoritarian tendencies in combination with the intentional triggering of the conflict with its Kurdish minority.

The European Neighboorhood Policy (ENP) was established in 2004 with the intention to foster development, political stability and security in the EU’s surrounding – thereby creating a “ring of friends”. However, given the current situation, the ENP is farer away from its goals that at the time of its enactment. The review of the ENP in 2015 acknowledged the necessity to readapt its strategies according to the lessons learnt.

In your opinion, what would be necessary to make the ENP an effective tool?

requested input/explanation of content:
Effectiveness of the ENP was questioned number of times, especially after increasing security concerns in the common neighbourhood of the EU and the Russian Federation. Lack of reciprocal interests (the EU and the ENP countries) provoked additional challenges in the Eastern neighbourhood of the EU.

Mostly, researches are conducted to approach the effectiveness of the ENP as a tool of Europeanisation, where the ENP countries are included as passive recipients of this policy. However, it’s critically important to highlight the role and impact of ENP countries on their Europeanization process. Different path of European integration of the Southern Caucasus countries, their choices and aspirations towards the EU, could prove that domestic variables matter with regard to result oriented Europeanization process. Obviously, the EU should be strongly supported by the bottom-up research outcomes, in order to fulfill the existing gaps in its external policy.
