From a broad perspective, the notion of the European Union’s neighbourhood includes countries with official candidate status (the Western Balkans and Turkey); countries cooperating with the EU, which either did not apply for membership or their application had not yet been dealt with by the EU (Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Russia and the countries in the Caucasus) and countries in Northern Africa and the Middle East. During the nineties, after the ratification of the Maastricht Treaty, the European Union exercised influence on its neighbourhood by means of association and enlargement, responding in many cases to direct pressure from its neighbourhood instead of following a clearly defined strategy. Nevertheless, the EU managed to project and export its norms, values and new institutions into Eastern and Southern Europe, where they were embraced and implemented by candidate countries, many of which later became full members. The attempt to spread liberal democracy and market economies to its environment was quite successful when it was based on the conditionality of the enlargement negotiations. It was less successful when the EU had no opportunity to underpin its demands for reform by commitments of full membership. Apparently, the EU lacks efficient instruments to bring about change outside its borders when it comes to countries which are only associated partners or remain outside the official and treaty-based framework of its foreign policy. The EU is still in search of a comprehensive and cohesive strategy for its entire neighbourhood.
