European Foreign Policy in an Evolving International System contributes to the understanding of recent developments in European foreign policy and offers an assessment of the role of the European Union as a global actor in the post-Cold War era. The volume provides the reader with a comprehensive and topical array of case studies on European Union foreign policy. The contributions, written by experts in the area, analyse the level of policy convergence achieved by EU member states in crucial areas and regions of the world. The book is organised in four sections: (1) The EU in the International System; (2) The EU and the Great Powers; (3) The EU and the Management of Conflicts in the Near Abroad; (4) The EU's Regional Policies. This is essential reading for scholars and students of European Union studies and, more generally, of International Relations. It also offers a readable and practical policy update to practitioners and the interested reader.
