The Reluctant Debutante: The European Union as Promoter of Democracy in its Neighbourhood

Senem Aydın / Gergana Noutcheva / Nathalie Tocci / Marius Vahl / Michael Emerson / Richard Youngs

In its discourse, the EU places democracy and the rule of law as number one. This paper examines the extent to which the EU is a coherent actor in pursuing this goal in practice, especially in its wider neighbourhood. Case studies are presented, covering much of the neighbourhood: Balkans, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine, Maghreb and Israel-Palestine.
