Article 8 TEU

Article 8 TEU

(p.99) Article 8 TEU
The EU Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights

Dimitry Kochenov

Oxford University Press

Article 8 TEU formally constitutionalizes the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) of the EU, which, until the ToL has only been based on soft law. Before the entry into force of the ToL not a single provision of the Treaties dealt specifically with the strengthening of relations with the neighbourhood of the EU. Article 8 TEU was supposed to bridge this gap, providing both the principles of the engagement with the neighbourhood and a special procedure for this. Until this day the provision has never been used as a legal basis of any EU action.

Keywords:   European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), principles, procedure
