Emerson, Michael. (2000) The Wider Europe as the European Union’s Friendly Monroe Doctrine. CEPS Policy Brief No. 27, October 2002. [Policy Paper]
[From the Introduction]. The ‘Wider Europe’ may, and certainly should, become one of the big next issues on the policy agenda of the European Union following the enlargement decisions to be taken in Copenhagen in December. Indeed the practical concerns raised by the forthcoming enlargement for the EU’s periphery to the North, East and South are already crowding in. A new vocabulary is sprouting up in Brussels, call it as you wish: ‘Wider Europe’, or ‘Proximity Policy’, or ‘Neighbourhood Policy’. What is certain is that the Wider Europe will not go away.
