About this book

This book presents a novel 'governance model' of democracy promotion. In detailed case studies of EU cooperation with Moldova, Morocco, and Ukraine, it examines how the EU promotes democratic governance through functional cooperation in the fields of competition policy, the environment, and migration.

Reviews

“Book’s main aim is to establish an alternative view of how the EU tries to promote democracy in its neighbourhood: through functional cooperation that may lead to democratic governance in the partner country. … EU bureaucrats will read it with great pleasure, as it claims to not simply repeat the often-heard criticism of ‘EU failure’ and ‘EU loss of credibility’ in democracy promotion, but to draw a more nuanced picture of the success of EU democracy support in its neighbourhood.” (Jan Claudius Völkel, Democratization, Vol. 23 (5), August, 2016)


'The book identifies more subtle but effective ways through which the EU can promote democracy in its non-democratic neighbours by inducing them to adopt functional EU policies, such as environment or energy, that contain democratic provisions. A thought provoking study particularly for those who maintain that the EU's democracy promotion in its neighbourhood has failed.' Professor Tanja Börzel, Jean Monnet Chair and Director of the Center for European Integration, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
