The understanding of the process of negotiation as a mode of neighbourhood governance requires that three questions be explored, i.e. the salience of the EU enlargement policy as a source of inspiration for the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP); the complexity of the negotiation process with several factors that shape the context, including most importantly the actors involved, their interests and preferences as well as their specific strategies, negotiation and communication styles; and the implications of the ideas behind the ENP as a result of which the target regions were treated in an uneven manner from the beginning. The paper seeks to assess the influence of the instrument of ‘negotiation’ on the background of other modes of neighbourhood governance. At the same time, it aims at furthering analysis of the ENP through the ‘negotiation perspective’ in order to deepen our understanding of this policy-framework.
