This timely collection is an important contribution to our understanding of the EU’s international relations during the last quarter century. Strategic Partnerships have increasingly become the neglected child of the EU foreign policy family. This volume is thus of historic and contemporary relevance.
This book aims to provide a critical analysis of the nature of the EU’s strategic partnership diplomacy, and of the partnerships themselves, in the conditions of the 2020s. It links with key aspects of the EU’s Global Strategy; it brings together a strong list of experts who work within a clear framework for analysis; and it deals not only with the substance of the policy but also with the ways in which the policy as a whole has emerged, is conducted and might develop in the future.
