The Geopolitics of Democratisation
Europe and its neighbours
The European Union's greatest success of the past twenty years remains the expansion of its democratic model to Eastern Europe. But the post-1989 tectonic plates are now beginning to shift. Europe is rediscovering the (geo)political limits of the law and democratisation. Its soft power, based on shared norms, trade and interdependence, are now being called into question.
Europe is experiencing a two-fold destabilisation: in the East, where Ukraine is grappling with Putin’s Russia; and in the South, where chaos and crumbling States have followed the Arab Spring. This brutal return of Realpolitik to the forefront has replaced questions of security, energy and migration, forcing the European Union to revisit its neighbourhood policy.
If Europe wishes to wield geopolitical influence over its neighbours, if it hopes to be a 'European space’, more open to the outside and better adapted to globalisation, it must become a more political and more strategic ‘European power’.
Penned by the most prominent experts, this volume invites readers to reconsider the relationship between the European community project and its borders.
