The aim of the paper is to design a policy which promotes political and economic stability in the European neighbourhood, increases its economic dynamics, and strengthens good governance. The "European Neighbourhood" refers to regions which are geographically close to the EU, but do not belong to the EU and do not have any prospect of accession, i.e. Africa, the Middle East, the Black Sea area, and the successor states of the Soviet Union. The current paper provides a number of elements of a successful partnership, some of which complement the existing European Neighbourhood Policy as well as Development Policy and lead to an active Partnership Policy which should be welcomed by either partner due to its potential to increase dynamics and well-being and to reduce the potential for conflict and disruptive migration.
