This paper collects the recommendations and the proposals for the ongoing revision of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). These are the results that emerged in a series of public debates promoted by the Representation of the European Commission in Italy in collaboration with the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in the framework the of the Citizens’ Dialogue initiative. The major shortcomings and inefficiencies affecting the ENP since its launch have been highlighted during the meetings through the analysis of two case studies, Libya and Ukraine. On the basis of these reflections, a list of proposals was formulated. The recommendations aim to rethink the nature of the ENP (strengthening its political dimension) and to ensure a better definition and management of its goals (working on the incentives offered to the partner countries). This new ENP should be able to respond both at the short-term needs and long-term objectives imposed by a wide arch of instability in the European neighbourhood that will last for many years to come.
