Section  will be dedicated to analyzing the policy framework of the ENP more in detail, and Section  will provide insight into the shortcomings and defi ciencies of this policy in general. As single case study, Azerbaijan will be highlighted in the view of the ENP in Section , and the conclusion will again sum up the main arguments of the paper.
