The book ‘The Foreign Policy of the European Union‘ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2nd edition), co-authored by Stephan Keukeleire and myself, is available now.

The book gives a comprehensive account of the EU’s foreign policy. Movingbeyond the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Common Security andDefence Policy, it demonstrates the scope and diversity of the EU’sforeign policy and shows how areas such as trade, development, environmentand energy are inextricable elements of it. The book examines the EU’s keyforeign relations – with its neighbourhood, with the US, China and Russia,and with the emerging powers – and argues that the EU’s foreign policyneeds to be understood not only as a response to crises and conflicts, butalso as a means of shaping international structures and influencinglong-term processes. Setting its analysis in historical context, thesecond edition has been updated throughout to take account of the latest trends, issues and research.
