FRIDE: Rethinking relationships in Europe’s East

FRIDE has published an article concerning the European Union’s policy towards the Eastern neighbourhood, which proposes that the neighbourhood policy should be set as a priority by the office of the new high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Federica Mogherini. 

The author, Mr. Boonstra, suggests that the EU’s policy towards the East must be more flexible, bilaterally customised, and extend cooperation beyond the six Eastern Partnership countries.

The article further envisages persisting problematic relations with Russia and re-iterates the importance of safeguarding democracy in the region through civil society.
