coeOn 14-15 November 2013, the Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe, Bruges campus, held an international conference to map the European Union’s wider neighbourhood relations. The conference, which benefited from the financial support of the European Commission, aimed at a comparative assessment of the different co-operation schemes that the EU maintained with third countries in order to put the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) into context and discuss lessons to be drawn. The speakers, who responded to a call for papers, focused on the European Economic Area as a potential model for the ENP, bilateral approaches (Switzerland, Turkey, Russia), the enlargement and association processes, the EU’s Northern Dimension and other multilateral neighbourhood relations.
