EU Neighbourhood Policy: All in vain?

The EU's Neighbourhood Policy is back to zero, a second time in less than four years.  Four truths have to be taken into account if the European Commission and its External Action Service are to deliver a new policy framework by June later this year, argue Gabriele Schöler and Stefani Weiss.
