About the Speech:

The EU’s engagement with its Eastern Neighbourhood is a test of the transformative power of European foreign policy. With crucial elections taking place in Georgia and Ukraine this month, the role of the EU in shaping domestic change in neighbouring states is an important and timely question. Dr. Laure Delcour discussed the difficulty of promoting the EU acquis in states that do not have the prospective of EU membership. Dr. Delcour is leading a project that assesses the impact of European Neighbourhood Policy on the domestic structures and policy preferences of partner states in the East. She presented the findings of the project to date and shared her views on the prospects of change in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Laure Delcour is an expert on EU policies in Eastern Europe at the Directorate of European Affairs in France’s National School of Administration (ENA). She is also a Director of Research at the Institute of International and Strategic Relations (IRIS) in Paris, where she focuses on the EU’s relations with Russia and the Eastern Neighbourhood. She is the author of Shaping the Post-Soviet Space? EU Policies and Approaches to Region Building (2011), Pioneer Europe? Testing European Foreign Policy in the Neighbourhood (2008) and La politique de l’Union européenne en Russie, 1990-2000 (2002). Dr. Delcour has lectured at the Institute of Political Studies (Sciences-Po) in Paris. She is currently a Visiting Professor at the College of Europe and a lecturer at the Institute of Political Studies in Strasbourg.
