Abstract

This book reviews a variety of approaches to the study of the European Union's foreign policy. Much analysis of EU foreign policy contains implicit theoretical assumptions about the nature of the EU and its member states, their inter-relationships, the international system in which they operate and the nature and direction of European integration. In many instances such assumptions - not being discussed openly - limit, rather than facilitate debate. The purpose of this book is to open up this field of enquiry so that students, observers and analysts of EU foreign policy can review a broad range of tools and theoretical templates from which the development and the trajectory of the EU's foreign policy can be studied. Situated as it is at the interface between European Studies and International Relations, the book also seeks to engage the attention of readers who are anxious to understand how the European Union relates to the rest of the world and to explain the efforts of the EU and its member states towards the creation of a credible, effective and principled foreign, security and defence policy.

Abstract

It is increasingly recognised that EU development cooperation policy has failed to meet its stated aims. In this book Arts and Dickson ask the obvious and important question: if the policy doesn't work, why bother with it? The authors assess why EU development policy has become largely ineffective, citing among the external causal factors the liberalisation of trade, and the growing influence of US and international actors such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund upon EU policy. It also considers contributing factors within the EU such as the enlargement of its membership and the resulting shifts in priorities. It is this analysis of internal and external factors affecting the decline of EU development policy that makes this study both innovative and unique. It brings together an impressive range of contributors from different disciplines resulting in a thorough and intelligent assessment of the debate. This study will appeal to advanced level undergraduates and academics of European politics in general, EU integration, development studies, and International Relations.

Abstract

Ce livre se veut un bilan des travaux d'un réseau international de cent quatre-vingts chercheurs qui ont participé à un programme de recherche sur le thème « Identités et conscience européennes au XXe siècle ». Dix chapitres s'interrogent sur l'étonnant paradoxe de la fin du XXe siècle, entre l'accélération de la construction de l'Europe, considérée par tous comme irréversible, et la faiblesse relative du sentiment européen, le « déficit d'imaginaire » qui l'accompagne. Ils s'attachent à cern...

Abstract

EN 1773, la révolte de Pougatchev aux marges de l’Oural et la « partie de thé » de Boston inaugurent une « ère des révolutions » qui touche de nombreux états européens, ainsi que leurs colonies américaines et atlantiques. En 1802, la paix d’Amiens permet une trêve dans un continent en guerre depuis une décennie ainsi qu’une stabilisation des processus révolutionnaires ou indépendantistes. Entre ces deux dates (le temps d’une génération) des révoltes séculaires se transforment parfois en « rév...

Abstract

Die weltpolitischen Konsequenzen des Krieges, den die USA und ihre "Koalition der Willigen" im März/April 2003 gegen den Irak geführt haben, sind noch immer nicht im Einzelnen abzusehen. Aber eine Folge ist bereits sichtbar: Von niemandem erwartet, ist eine intensive öffentliche Debatte über die internationale Ordnung und die zukünftige Rolle Europas in Gang gekommen. Der Irak-Krieg ist zum Katalysator einer breiten Diskussion über europäische Erneuerung und europäische Identität geworden. Die in diesem Band zusammengetragenen Beiträge sind Wortmeldungen in einer Debatte, die gerade erst angefangen hat, und sie sind zugleich Interventionen in politische Verwerfungen und Entwicklungen, von denen noch niemand genau weiß, wohin sie gehen werden und wohin sie gehen sollen. Die Beiträge von Ernst-Otto Czempiel, Jürgen Kocka, Gudrun Krämer, Herfried Münkler, August Pradetto, Emanuel Richter und Christian Tomuschat entstammen einer Vortragsreihe anlässlich der Verleihung des Karlspreises an

La variété des communications témoigne des difficultés politiques, économiques, sociales, humaines et cul...
