Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has been the focus of a great deal of insightful academic work since its inception in 2004. With the re-launch of the Policy in 2015, and the intense scrutiny of the EU’s role in tackling major global issues in the region (Syria, Ukraine, Israel-Palestine, refugee and migration flows, terrorism etc.), there is an increased need to understand the complexity of the EU’s relations with countries to the East and South of the EU. Normann’s book comes therefore at an ideal moment to take stock of the European Neighbourhood Policy. The result of a Franco-German PhD thesis submitted to Trier University and Sciences Po Paris in 2010, the book is a lengthy (564 pages) and detailed study of the under-researched and under-theorized relationship between the ENP and the Member States.
