Leader or Foot-Dragger? Perceptions of the European Union in Multilateral International N..(2006:1)

Författare: 

The increased influence of the European Union in world politics has sparked a lively debate on what influence it actually has, its degree of coherence and on the qualities that characterise its behaviour.

This report assesses how the EU is perceived by other states in international multilateral negotiations. Using concepts and ideas from role-theory, the author asks what roles and characteristics other actors attach to the EU.

The report was presented at the seminar The European Union as a Global Actor and is a part of the research project Borders of the new EU - possibilities and challenges.
