Chapter 25: EU Cohesion policy in the Eastern Partnership region: a case of external Europeanisation
The Ukrainian crisis has demonstrated that the European Union has a strong interest in ‘wider Europe’ and a vital interest in the wider cohesive Europe through intensive Cohesion policy in Eastern Europe. This Eastern Partnership (EaP) Cohesion policy needs a new conceptual framework based on: (1) external Europeanisation and/or external governance; (2) a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area; and (3) the broadest possible meaning of security as its three main analytical pillars. In the present prolonged crisis the chapter can only outline the key features of this special Cohesion policy and provide an overview of these main pillars in the high levels of uncertainty of the mid-2010s in Wider Europe.
