The European Neighbourhood Policy and the Democratic Values of the EU

A Legal Analysis

By Narine Ghazaryan

This book offers a legal analysis of the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) as it applies to developing relations with the EU's neighbors in the East and South. It explores the legal aspects of this policy, including ENP competence matters, institutional arrangements, and substantive policy issues, using international relations theory as the starting point in defining the EU's role as a political actor. The book focuses on the adequacy of the ENP legal framework for transposing the EU's democratic values and upholding its political image. In this connection, the book also features an analysis of EU democratic values as they are intended to be understood by its neighbors. The relevant legal framework of this policy and its implementation in the States of the South Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan) are evaluated, revealing the effects of the ENP in their democratic processes.
