EuropEos Commentary, No. 5, 28 September 2010, 4 p.

Riccardo Perissich *

More importantly, this approach prevents the EU from at last accepting that enlargement is not the only – nor necessarily the best – policy option available to deal effectively with a strategically important country on its borders.

* Riccardo Perissich is Executive Vice-President of the Council for the United States and Italy and former Director General for the Internal Market and Industry in the European Commission.
