In a relatively short time, the EU has become one of the most important actors on the world stage. This updated second edition of The Foreign Policy of the European Union explores the goals and effectiveness of the EU’s external actions after adoption of the Lisbon Treaty. The book brings together prominent scholars and policymakers who provide an up-to-date view of the EU’s foreign policy merits and challenges.
“The role and place of the European Union in the world has been a constant question for all of the actors involved…. This book reminds us well of the importance of this question and offers a particularly welcome general overview during these times of doubt and pessimism.”—Pierre Vimont, from the foreword
