“How to improve the European Neighbourhood Policy? Concepts, perceptions and policy recommendations for its Eastern dimension”

The conference brought together 40 repre­sen­ta­tives from the academic and the policy-making commu­nities, combining scholarly and policy-relevant perspec­tives. In the context of a changing policy environment the conference aimed at analysing the current state of the art of the European Neigh­bourhood Policy (ENP) and its most recent policy initiative for the Eastern dimension, the Eastern Partnership, in order to formulate policy recom­men­da­tions for its improvement.

Therefore a first panel discussed the concepts of ownership and condi­tion­ality as the key guiding principles of the ENP and the Eastern Partnership, and examined how useful these concepts are and how they can success­fully be imple­mented. In the second session the focus shifted towards the Eastern partner countries’ perception of the ENP and the Eastern Partnership, their evalu­ation of the ENP, how it could be improved and what they expect from the European Union in this respect. The ENP and the Eastern Partnership were discussed from Ukrainian, Moldovan and Belarusian perspec­tives. During the concluding session the previous discussion on the usefulness and effec­tiveness of ENP policy concepts and instru­ments and on the percep­tions of the partner countries were summarised and synthe­sised in the form of concrete policy recom­men­da­tions and discussed with practi­tioners from the European insti­tu­tions working on ENP and Eastern Partnership.
We linked the round­table format with the idea to have short written inputs from the partic­i­pants, thereby benefiting from the variety of experts from academia and practice who attended the conference. These papers were distributed in advance to all partic­i­pants and are now available here and on the TEPSA website.
