In this new CEPS Policy Brief, the author, the Director General of DG External Relations at the European Commission, explores the utility of the EU’s newest foreign policy tool, the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). Describing the ENP as a virtuous circle, Landaburu characterises the policy as one based on shared values and enlightened self-interest. He argues that by increasing the prosperity, stability and security of the EU’s neighbours and by projecting the EU’s prosperity, stability and security beyond its borders, it increases its own. In other words, “by helping our neighbours, we help ourselves”.
