The (Non-)Normative Power EU and the European Neighbourhood Policy: An Exceptional Policy for an Exceptional Actor?
AbstractThe ENPÕs strong rhetoric in terms of the promotion of normative values, or Òmilieu goalsÓ, has stimulated an interest in the academic community for the argument that the EU is somehow a Ònormative powerÓ. This brief article will, however, sustain that the many contradictions inherent in the multifaceted EUÕs foreign policy conducted in the UnionÕs relations with neighbouring countries makes it difficult, for the time being, to fully concur with the assertion that the Union is a normative power.
