This chapter focuses on EU justice and home affairs (JHA) policies towards its East European neighbours. Based on the analysis of the relevant policy evolutions and academic research, it shows that migration and related issues have dominated the agenda of EU JHA cooperation with these countries. The chapter underlines that EU policies have been significantly shaped by the eastward enlargement. It also emphasizes an important distinction between EU approaches to Eastern Partnership countries, on the one hand, and Russia, on the other. This is reflected in a wide range of legally binding, non-legally binding as well as operational cooperation instruments deployed by the EU in the fields of readmission, visa liberalization and border management. The chapter devotes special attention to the inherent tension between values and interests within the external dimension of EU JHA policies in the region. This tension amplifies an important challenge of coherence of EU policies in the context of an increasing competition with Russia in the shared neighbourhood.

We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
