Russia's Impact on EU Policy Transfer to the Post-Soviet Space : The Contested Neighborhood, Hardback Book

Russia's Impact on EU Policy Transfer to the Post-Soviet Space : The Contested Neighborhood Hardback

Part of the Routledge/UACES Contemporary European Studies series


Russia's impact on EU policy transfer to the post-Soviet space has not been as negative as often perceived.

EU policies have traveled to countries and issue areas, in which the dependence on Russia is high and Russian foreign policy is increasingly assertive. This book explores Russia's impact on the transfer of EU policies in the area of Justice, Liberty, and Security and energy policy - two policy areas in which countries in the EU's Eastern neighborhood are traditionally strongly bound to Russia.

Focusing especially on Armenia and Georgia, it examines whether it is the structural condition of interdependence, the various institutional ties and similarities of neighboring countries with the EU and Russia, or their concrete foreign policy actions that have the greatest impact on domestic policy change in the region.

The book also investigates how important these factors are in relation to domestic ones.

It identifies conditions under which different degrees of EU policy transfer occur and the circumstances under which Russia exerts either supportive or constraining effects on this process. This book will be of key interest to students and scholars of EU and European politics, international relations and comparative politics.
