Background:
The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) developed by the EU since 2004 goes beyond classical political cooperation to include elements of economic integration, as well as support for reforms to stimulate economic and social development. The ENP is strengthened through regional cooperation initiatives: the Union for the Mediterranean and the Eastern Partnership.
