About this book

This collection examines how the EU is seen in the two regions that are at the centre of its geopolitical interest. Focusing on Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, it provides a critical assessment of how their external perceptions relate to EU policy towards them.

Reviews

“It should be required reading for those working in European Studies, experts in the areas of Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, certainly interesting to geographers, political scientists, media and cultural studies scholars, researchers in international relations, politicians and practitioners, and anyone with a specific interest in Ukraine, Georgia, Kenya, Senegal and their places in the current European crises.” (Roman Horbyk, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 68 (8), 2016)


'A timely and welcome contribution to the analysis of the external image of the EU, [this book] includes largely unexplored country case-studies and sheds light on the EU's role in world politics.' - Sonia Lucarelli, University of Bologna, Italy

'A well balanced range of insights into the EU's external relations policy as seen from outside the EU. The book captures particularly well the challenges facing the EU in convincing states, regions and peoples outside its borders of the wisdom of engaging with EU policy objectives. A well researched and carefully constructed book that fills an important gap in the academic literature on EU foreign policy.' - Alun Jones, University College Dublin, Ireland
