Institute of International Relations and Political Science together with partners won Horizon 2020 funding for the project „The EU and Eastern Partnership Countries: An Inside-Out Analysis and Strategic Assessment“. The main goal of the project is to investigate under what conditions the EU’s strategies and instruments for its Eastern neighbours can be more effective. The findings will be submitted to the European Commission.
Ten years after its inception, the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has fallen short of accomplishing its mission. The war in Ukraine and the rising tensions with Russia have made a re-assessment of the ENP both more urgent and more challenging. This project will address two questions: first, why has the EU fallen short of creating peace, prosperity and stability in its Eastern neighbourhood? Second, what can be done to strengthen the EU’s transformative power in supporting political and economic change in the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries?

Former Prime Minister of the Republic of Lithuania Mr. Andrius Kubilius
You have exhibited great skills of policy analysis - the policy we implement in Lithuania as well as the ones other countires implement worldwide. You know how to analyse it. You do it critically and this is distinctly good.
