Where we work

The EU has a coherent European Neighbourhood Policy to direct relations with its eastern and southern neighbours. A Strategic Partnership based on four Common Spaces is the framework for relations with Russia, which is not part of the ENP. Since January 2007, Commission programmes that run under the ENP and the Strategic Partnership have been implemented mainly through a common financial instrument: the ENPI (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument).

Cooperation with countries of the Eastern Neighbourhood and Russia will focus on: transport; energy; sustainable management of natural resources; border/migration control; socio-cultural relations; and dealing with abandoned munitions and landmines.

Cooperation with neighbouring Mediterranean countries will prioritise the spheres of justice, security and migration; sustainable economic development; and socio-cultural exchanges.
