REVUE : European Union Foreign Affairs Journal (vol. 2, 2014)

Hans-Jürgen ZAHORKA

This issue contains various contributions on the Eastern Partnership countries: one about Moldova, its way to the EU, but also about the problems of this country which is not yet too well known in the EU, one with a creative contribution by an author who knows exactly what he is writing about: Eduardo Lorenzo Ochoa on a possible new association agreement between Armenia and the EU, one which explains Georgia's statehood from a historical perspective and a factsheet on EU-Ukraine affairs. This was just finished several days before the downing of Malaysia Airlines MH17. But there is also a short paper on EU sanctions; this became even more topical after the tragic loss of the 298 humans in this aircraft. It might be of use if one wants to make an assessment if EU foreign policy is efficient enough or not. And there must also be mentioned a report on a Berlin conference of the European Geopolitical Forum, Brussels, with a scenario on the economy of Nagorno Karabakh, Azerbaijan and Armenia.

But also one of the relevant papers from Iceland's social and economic organisations on the country's possible EU membership is re-printed here, and it's arguments on fisheries and agriculture have led to the finishing of Iceland's EU accession negotiations. It has to be assumed that in the near future there will be no other EU negotiations, but Iceland is to a high extent part of the EU Single Market although it cannot really influence this. This would substantially different if Iceland would continue to negotiate.
