This chapter focuses on the main reasons of the EU's failure to promote democracy in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. The research question - why the EU's activity of democracy promotion did not favor the transformation of European former soviet countries into democracies - was developed into three more specific questions: 1) what went wrong with EU democracy promotion activity in this area? 2) what were those domestic and external actors and factors that prevented, in each specific country, a successful democratization? and 3) is it possible to democratize the area without the promise of EU membership?

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the main reasons of the EU's failure to promote democracy in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. The research question - why the EU's activity of democracy promotion did not favor the transformation of European former soviet countries into democracies - was developed into three more specific questions: 1) what went wrong with EU democracy promotion activity in this area? 2) what were those domestic and external actors and factors that prevented, in each specific country, a successful democratization? and 3) is it possible to democratize the area without the promise of EU membership?
