The EU has an ability to induce change in its neighbourhood by a wide range of means. The question is how deep and how extensive that influence can be. The objective of this paper is to address this issue. To this end, following an overview of the ENP’s evolution, the challenges that the ENP faces are discussed. It is argued that although the ENP has not always proved an efficient EU’s external policy instrument, it retains an important position in the EU’s external policy with a wide range of economic and political instruments extended to the ENP partner-countries.
