Assist. Professor Panagiota Manoli (University of the Peloponnese, Research Fellow ELIAMEP) participates with a chapter on “The European Neighborhood Policy: The Eastern Dimension”,  in the edited book The European Union’s External Relations by S. Blavoukos, D. Bourantonis, T. Tsakonas (Athens: Sideris) 2019

The chapter examines the actorness and performance of the EU in its immediate European neighborhood focusing on the Eastern Partnership (EaP) policy. It argues that the performance of the EaP is primarily determined by regional security conditions and the exogenous negotiating environment and less by endogenous parameters (such as the policy’s original design).
