When twelve new members joined the European Union in 2004 and 2007, the borders of the Union shifted further towards the East. This paper examines the relationship of the EU with its Eastern Neighbourhood; the six Eastern Partnership countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine – and Russia. Special attention is paid to the potential opportunities arising out of these relationships from the youth perspective of FutureLab Europe and the measures that its young participants deem necessary in order for these opportunities to be seized.
