This study focuses on the “in-between” countries of Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus after the Orange revolution. It deals with the Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), which arose when Europe became “whole, free, and united” after the successful EU and NATO double enlargements. The EU found itself with a vast new border that had to be not only managed and defended as a system corresponding to the overall norms and needs of the union, but a policy needed to be devised and implemented with the lands beyond the “new frontier”.
