Neighbourhood Europeanisation: extending a hand to Southern partners or securing internal security interests?
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis aims to shed new light on the usage of Europeanisation as a framework within which to evaluate the consequences of neighbourhood Europeanisation. This is done by looking at the diffusion of European values towards the EU’s Southern ENP Partners in the period of 2007 up and until 2013. A comparative case study is drawn, assessing the normative or structural nature of the Union’s narrative brought out by examining the reflections of the rapporteurs of the European Commission pertaining to the diffusion of the centrality of peace, democracy, and rule of law onto the Union’s Southern ENP Partner States through the European Neighbourhood Policy. Discussion of the two case studies of Morocco and Egypt presented show reflection of a normative approach by the EU, but also indicate that normative diffusion can only be effective if the necessary instruments are sufficiently developed.
