It is argued that the theoretical framework of “Policy Transfer Network” is useful for the description and the analysis of the changes that are taking place in the BSEC member states following the good governance principles. The BSEC is an interesting case-study because it includes countries with different levels of development, countries that are members of the European Union (EU), namely Greece, Romania and Bulgaria, and candidate countries (Turkey). The BSEC is also an interesting international organisation because, as it is argued, it acts as an agent of “soft” policy transfer of good governance practices. A stronger push towards modernisation can be observed among the BSEC member states that are also members of the EU. This comparison leads to some interesting conclusions on the impact of Europeanisation on cases of successful policy transfer.
