Between the United States and Russia : establishing a European policy for the Black Sea region

Abstract

The accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union widens the responsibilities of the EU towards the Black Sea region. This zone, which has become a crossroads of strategic influences, is also one of its main energy supply route. However, the development of a European foreign policy aiming to secure this supply route, to bring the bordering States closer to the acquis communautaire and to alleviate regional conflicts, runs up against the intrinsic limits of the Union and the contradictory interests of Russia and the United States.
