About this book

What is the European Union international role and identity becoming after the cold war, September 11th and the transatlantic rift? Is the second global actor challenging the trends towards a 'pax americana'? EUROPE: A CIVILIAN POWER? provides an original account of the features and the external relations of the EU as a civilian power in the making. It addresses the key questions on the new security threat, world emergencies challenging the EU, not only as a peace and democracy stablizer on a continental scale, but also as an actor which shares responsibility for global governance and world order. MARIO TELO provides a comparative analysis of regional cooperation in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America and focuses on the interregional relations with the EU. He highlights the international relevance of the current EU constitutionalization process and gives a critical review of the concepts of civilian power, soft power, civilizing power, multilateralism, multipolarism, international fragmentation, empire, hegemonic stability and global legitimacy. Analysis of the best literature on international relations and European integration is completed by MARIO's practical experience as an advisor to the EU institutions and a lecturer in Asia and Americas.

Reviews

'Mario Telò has produced a visionary and wide-ranging analysis of how a European Union foreign policy, consistent with European social practices and values, could contribute to the revival of a transatlantic partnership, a new multilateralism, and the solution of pressing global problems. For Americans, there could be no better introduction to progressive European thinking than Europe: A Civilian Power?' - Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University, USA

'Well documented and deftly juggling the various political theories currently doing the rounds, he casts a critical eye over events, highlighting areas of interest and shortcomings to expose long-term trends in the way the world system is evolving and the innovative role of the EU in this connection'. - Frederik Ronse, European Library

'Political power and global order are the core topics of this book, which offers a deep analysis of the European Union's role in the international system after the end of bipolar confrontation.' - The International Spectator
