About this Unit
Since the end of the Cold War, the European Union (EU) has become not only one of the central actors in world affairs, but its novel forms of governance and dynamics of integration have marked its uniqueness in the history of international life. This unit introduces students to the diverse international roles of the EU as well as the nature of its external relations. It also considers the recent assertions that the EU's foreign policy is 'in crisis.' The unit will evaluate, from different perspectives, the institutions involved in the international diplomacy of the EU and its development of foreign policy.
