Revisiting European Security: Challenges and Regions in Transition
The EU is currently facing multiple crises, ranging from democratic backsliding to migration, and its so-called “rule-based order” is challenged by both internal and international circumstances. Nevertheless, the EU is an evolving international actor and, despite the shortfalls, it has provoked the hopes of being a normative international actor which defends multilateralism and rule-based order. This edited volume re-examines the EU as an international actor and power in the context of recent challenges both in the EU and in international politics, and addresses the following questions: Does the EU make a difference in various regions and issue areas? Is it influential and visible? What kind of a power is the EU regarding these regions? How is the EU perceived by other powers? What are the main threats perceived by the EU and how will the EU address these threats? How will the EU defend its values under current circumstances?
This research focuses on the migration and asylum policies of the EU as a key area, and examines the EU’s role as an international actor in neighbouring regions and in Africa and China. The book provides a context in current international circumstances and will be useful for students and practitioners.
