This paper describes the European Social Model (ESM) and the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP), and looks at the similarities and differences in their aims, objectives and political discourse. The writer explains to what degree both policies are compatible and mutually enhancing, and in what ways they oppose and contradict each other, particularly in relation to the view that the EU is "Fortress Europe."
From the Paper:"As far as welfare is concerned ESM, as a desirable model but one that has not yet been implemented, aims at respecting the welfare state nation by focusing on: education and training skills,as well as life-long learning, a higher level of social inclusion based on the modernization of the social protection sector. The ENP covers as well areas like: information on society, environment, research and development; as well as civil society, education, public health. The only difference between the two might be the level of intrusion in the internal affairs of the state in question, as both policies focus on implementing all sorts of programs and policies by respecting in the same time the sovereignty of the states."
