The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has suffered from a 'conception-performance gap'. It was conceived with the vision of creating a ‘ring of friends’ at Europe’s borders but after one decade of implementation, the European Union (EU) is surrounded by a ‘ring of fire’. This policy paper reviews the ENP’s first decade, analyses how the review of November 2015 addresses the conception-performance gap and formulates recommendations for the policy’s future implementation.
