About this book

This book questions whether the institutions and practices of the emerging EU diplomatic system conform to established standards of the state-centric diplomatic order; or whether practice is paving the way for innovative, even revolutionary, forms of diplomatic organisation.

Reviews

“The book covers the whole gamut of the EEAS’s activities, starting from its institutional position within the EU framework and touching upon the legal implications of its evolution, its role in multilateral forums, its bilateral activities and its recruitment and training practices. … This book is therefore an essential and illuminating reading for any scholar willing to explore the future developments of the EEAS.” (Marco Rossi, JCMS Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (6), 2016)


"Diplomacy at all levels is experiencing fundamental challenges as it responds to changing global, regional and national environments. As the contributors to this book clearly demonstrate, the development of the EEAS after the Lisbon Treaty provides a significant and fascinating instance of diplomatic change and adaptation. The careful blending of academic and practitioner perspectives will prove invaluable to those concerned with the transformation of diplomacy generally as well as the development of the processes and structures associated with EU foreign policy." - Brian Hocking, Emeritus Professor of International Relations, Loughborough University, UK

"The wide range of academic and practical experience in this comprehensive examination of the EEAS makes an important contribution to understanding its creation, organisation, principles and practice. This is all the more timely as the EEAS faces challenges abroad and also at home from member states' willingness to give the support essential for an effective EU foreign and security policy." - Sir Brian Crowe, former Director General for External and Politico-Military Affairs, Council of the European Union (General Secretariat)
