10: The EU and its neighbours: EU foreign policy between ambition and pragmatism

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

The subject of this seminar is the European Union’s external relations with its southern and eastern neighbours. It is based on the assumption that the EU’s key foreign policy approach is the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). The seminar topic should also be viewed in light of the EU’s goal of creating social and national resilience in EU neighbour states. Moreover, the emphasis of the ENP is on considerations such as differentiated bilateralism, comprehensiveness, and principled pragmatism. Seminar participants are encouraged critically to question these aims. Case studies from the eastern and southern neighbourhoods will also be analysed, including in connection with current debates on the alleged normative power of the EU, its role as a resolver of conflicts and current practices of association.
