    Abstract

    In December 2014 the European Union (EU) deployed a Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) mission in Ukraine. The mandate of the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) was originally two years, but it has been extended until November 2017. This paper examines to what extent EUAM has been successful from the EU’s perspective. It does so by assessing to what extent the mission has achieved its (explicit) normative objectives and (implicit) strategic objectives. The paper argues that the mission has contributed to the EU’s strategic objectives by shaping the milieu in Ukraine but it has been less successful in advancing the EU’s normative objectives. However, in the case of EUAM, the Union’s strategic and normative interests, although different, have not hampered the mission’s overall performance.
