In the contemporary policy debate on the EU’s neighbourhood, grand designs are transforming into more pragmatic considerations. This book examines regional cooperation among the countries in Europe’s northern neighbourhood, with an emphasis on the pitfalls and successes of engaging Russia. Drawing from the experiences of northern partnerships, the authors assess prospects for extending collaboration on energy, transport, the environment and public health. They conclude that practical regional cooperation with Russia in the north can prove highly relevant not only for developing the EU’s northern policy but also for working with Russia more generally.
