The Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe, Bruges campus, in cooperation with its TOTAL Chair of EU Foreign Policy, organised an international conference to discuss the concept of the ‘neighbours of the neighbours’ of the European Union. This conference, which was financially supported by the European Commission, dealt with the diplomatic and geopolitical challenges beyond the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. The Keynote Speech of the conference was given by David O’Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer at the European External Action Service. The two-day conference was divided into three sections in which speakers and discussants looked into the geopolitical dimensions beyond the ENP’s South (I) and East (II), and the diplomatic dimensions beyond the EU’s immediate neighbourhood (III).
