Abstract: 

Is the EU isolated within the emergent multipolar world? Concentrating on interregional relations and focussing on the European Union’s (EU) evolving international role with regards to regional cooperation, this innovative book collects a set of fresh empirical analyses of interregional ties binding the EU with its Eastern and Southern neighbourhood, as well as with Asia, Africa and the Americas. The 25 leading authors from 5 continents have contributed original and diverse chapters and the book advances a novel theoretical ‘post-revisionist’ approach beyond both the Eurocentrism of ‘Europe First’ perspectives as well as the Euroscepticism of those advocating to simply move ‘Beyond Europe’.

Besides its’ three editors, Louise Fawcett, Mario Telò & Frederik Ponjaert; the book includes contributions by Paul Bacon, Tanja A. Börzel, Céline Cocq, Ramona Coman, Barbara Delcourt, Giovanni Finizio, Lorenzo Fioramonti, Evi Fitriani, Cord Jakobeit, Stephan Kingah, John Kotsopoulos, Sandra Lavenex, Andrés Malamud, Gustavo G. Müller, Christian Olsson, Thomas Risse, Jürgen Rüland, Pedro Seabra, Sarah Teo, Min Shu, Stelios Stavridis, and Alfredo Da Gama E Abreu Valladão.
