The EU as a Global Actor. A Force for Good in the World?
This volume is an outcome of the 2013 European Research Day. The purpose of the European Research Day was to invite scholars to think about the EU’s role in the world today from different theoretical, disciplinary and thematic perspectives. The presentations raised pertinent questions regarding the ideological construction, self-image, function and consequences of the EU as a global power/actor from a historic as well as contemporary perspective and in various policy fields. This collection contains three papers that focus on important themes raised during the European Research Day, followed by a final synthetic chapter by the keynote speaker of the event: Professor Ian Manners.
