News 2015/03/06 The review process of the European Neighbourhood policy has started

The aim of the recently published Joint Consultation Paper "Towards a new European neighbourhood policy" is to review the assumptions on which the policy is based, and how instruments should be used to better contribute to this cooperation. The document, published by the European Commission on 4 March 2015, has the purpose to explore whether the ‘special relationship’ is reaching its full potential. This document will frame a policy debate on the future direction of the ENP, which will involve both partners in the neighbouring countries and stakeholders across the EU.

This consultation will engage with key international organisations active in the neighbourhood. Interested members of the public will also have an opportunity to submit written contributions. The consultation on this document is foreseen until 30 June 2015.
