Should the European Neighbourhood Policy stop at the borders of the
European Union's immediate neighbouring countries? This book is the
first full length study of the `neighbours of the EU's neighbours',
a concept originally introduced by the European Commission with
reference to Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
These regions in the EU's broader neighbourhood are often perceived
as an `arc of crisis' from which manifold challenges emanate for
Europe.This timely book takes stock of the state of the EU's
cooperation with the neighbours of its neighbours and explores how
the concept might help promote security, stability and prosperity
beyond the countries which are formally part of the European
Neighbourhood Policy. How can the EU create bridges between these
regions? What instruments does the EU have at its disposal and how
can it link them in order to respond to the challenges and overcome
the current fragmentation? One of the conclusions is the suggestion
to consider a pragmatic `EU Strategy for the Neighbours of its
Neighbours' which addresses the needs of the broader EU
neighbourhood in a more systematic and consistent manner and helps
transform in the long run the `arc of crisis' into another `ring of
