Routledge Studies in European Foreign Policy

Series Editors:

It is a timely moment to launch a new series on European foreign policy. Europe and the EU now face multiple challenges including: conflict in the Middle East and the rise of radical jihadist groups like Islamic State; assertive Russian action in Ukraine and other countries on the EU’s eastern borders; the strategic ambitions of rising powers; and the euro crisis’ impact on the EU’s global power.

Additionally, the Union’s own internal institutional processes have undergone far-reaching change in recent years and a plethora of new strategies has been introduced covering Asia, trade, counter-terrorism, democracy and human rights, geo-economics, and other regions and topics.

This series will address the standard range of conceptual and theoretical questions related to European foreign policy. At the same time, in response to the intensity of new policy developments, it endeavors to ensure that it also has a topical flavor, addressing the most important and evolving challenges to European foreign policy, in a way that will be relevant to the policy-making and think-tank communities.

Key topics include:

  • The EU’s responses to the emergence of a new geopolitics in the Middle East;

  • European and EU policy towards the east, as it grapples with conflict in Ukraine and instability elsewhere across the region covered by the Eastern Partnership;

  • Europe’s changing engagement with rising powers, and in particular with Asia;

  • Transatlantic relations;

  • The foreign policy impact of the EU’s internal crisis;

  • The new Energy Union, energy security and climate change;

  • Europe’s relationship to its southern neighbours in the Mediterranean and in the Sahel and the Horn of Africa.
