About this book

Through empirical analysis, consisting of five detailed case studies, including the CFSP and JHA frameworks, this book fills a distinct gap in the scholarship on European security and policy-making. As such, this book constitutes an important and original input in the debate on European security after the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty.

Reviews

Kaunert and Zwolski have produced a groundbreaking analysis of the EU as a global security, combining the interaction and application of EU internal and external security policy instruments. By linking effectively theoretical tools from security studies with empirical investigations in five distinct issue areas, the book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of both the process and output of the EU as a security actor at the international level. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in European security governance or security studies more generally.

Emil Kirchner, Department of Government, University of Essex, UK

This unique book provides a comprehensive perspective on the EU as a security actor. Kaunert and Zwolski broaden our understanding of European security by juxtaposing cases studies from the CFSP and AFSJ with examinations of non-traditional security issues, making this valuable to scholars of EU Studies and International Relations alike.

John Occhipinti, Department of Political Science and Director of European Studies, Canisius College, USA

This book significantly advances our knowledge of European security policy. It succeeds laudably in its aim of introducing a comprehensive approach. The five case studies provide important insights into branches of European security that too often are analyzed separately.
