Description - The European Union as a Global Actor by Charlotte Bretherton
The European Union has emerged on to the world stage as a global actor surprisingly recently. However the EU is now, quite rightly, regarded as the second most powerful, wealthy and influential international presence and the only one with the genuine clout to rival the US. This has been seen recently on issues as varied as international security, peacekeeping, global warming, trade and human rights. This book examines the emergence, role and future of the EU as an actor in world politics. It looks at the core areas of European foreign policy: economy; trade; the environment; development; common foreign and security policy; international security (including the proposed European defence force) and identity. These are analysed both theoretically and empirically. The book is unique in synthesising theory from both the European Union and the international organisation's literature. This fully updated new edition explains and analyses the latest theoretical developments.
