EU Neighbours and the European Neighbourhood Policy

Prof. SCHUMACHER (DE) chairs a high-level conference

This major is destined to take into account the salience of ENP- and EU neighbourhood-related issues and allows students to obtain a better understanding of the EU’s multi-faceted policies towards the 16 countries in the EU’s neighbourhood (East and South). Also, it provides students with an opportunity to capture the political, socio-political, socio-economic, legal, energy- and identity-related developments in the neighbourhood itself. The major is truly interdisciplinary as it draws from EU studies, EU foreign policy analysis, peace and conflict studies, comparative politics, area studies, political economy and energy studies. It benefits from the presence on the Natolin campus of the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair – the only academic department world-wide that focuses exclusively on the study of the ENP and the EU’s neighbourhood.
