The European Union as a Global Actor
Informed by contemporary theoretical debates within the discipline of International Relations, this book provides a sustained analysis of EU foreign policy. Issues covered include: how actorness is constructed, and the status, coherence, consistency and roles of the EU as an actor; how the field of trade relations forms the basis of the EU's activities; the EU in global environmental diplomacy, N-S relations and in relation to the Mediterranean and East/Central Europe; and the EU's controversial relationship to CFSP and defence. This text reveals that the EU is a multifaceted and variable actor, which cannot be fitted into any orthodox template of a nation state.
