From its onset, the ENP has been subject to a diversity of conflicting visions, expectations and interests of parties involved in this novel and broad policy-framework. Originating in economic and political pragmatism, these conflicting visions and interests weigh heavily on the efficiency of the ENP implementation. Overall however, the ENP partner-countries seem to agree in one respect, i.e. a criticism towards the EU and the rationale behind the launch and the modes of the implementation of the ENP. By dwelling on the ENP partner-countries’ positions and interests with regard to the ENP, the objective of this paper is to highlight that issue.
