Contestation of EU enlargement : and European Neighbourhood Policy Hardback
Part of the STUDIES IN EUROPEAN COOPERATION series
- Other Formats
This book investigates the domestic sources of two components of the EU Foreign Policy directed toward its closest neighbourhood: the EU Enlargement and the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).
The book employs various methodologies and approaches to uncover the main actors, arguments and arenas that are engaged in the processes of contestation, legitimization and politicisation of the EU's relations with its neighbours.
In doing so, it highlights how these policies are contested by civil society, political parties and in parliamentary debates at the EU level and in member states.
By implication, this volume encourages a debate on if, and how, democratic principles can operate within the EU Foreign Policy realm, and also on the effects of citizens' involvement in the external relations domain. Part of the STUDIES IN EUROPEAN COOPERATION series.
