About this book

This book assesses the instruments and measures geared towards determining the EU's relations with it's neighbours. These are channelled on the one hand by the enlargement policy focusing on the Western Balkans and on the other hand by the neighbourhood policy which will enable the integration of Central and Eastern European neighbouring countries without offering membership. Both of these policies have strong local and regional effects in the EU's neighbouring countries. However, little attention has been paid to the perceptions of and impact of these policies in the neighbouring countries themselves. 
By presenting theoretical contributions and empirical case studies drawing on qualitative and ethnographic fieldwork, this book provides new insights that will be of great interest for students, researchers and practitioners in the fields of Geography, Sociology, Political Science and European Studies.

Reviews

“The main objective of the book is to assess the instruments and measures that relevant actors, mostly EU policy and decision makers, gear towards determining the Community’s relations with its neighbours in the Western Balkans and Central and Eastern Europe. … the book is an invaluable contribution. From the point of view of integration and security, both so much emphasised in this volume, European Neighbourhood Policy has seemingly brought along few tangible positive outcomes for the neighbours … .” (Márton Pete, Hungarian Geographical Bulletin, Vol. 66 (1), 2017)
