From "The Economic Factor in International Relations"

By Spyros Economides & Peter Wilson, p. 131.

[...] institutions such as the EU promote aid conditionality for other reasons as well. The EU likes to portray itself as a "civilian power" that uses foreign policy tools other than coercion or force in order to achieve progressive change. This is especially the case with regard to transition economies in the post-comunist world and states aspiring to EU membership.
