Abstract

The current context of world politics, with the pressing of transnational issues such as migration and climate change, as well as the rise of unilateralism among major powers, underscores to many observers the relevance and need of a common foreign policy for the EU and for its member-states. However, obstacles to European influence in the world may well be located within the EU, among the difficulties or its member-states to forge the consensus needed for significant external action, rather than in the adversity of distant challenges. What is the record and recent trends of European cooperation in external affairs? This panel aims at identifying the conditions and patterns of cooperation and coordination among member-states external strategies. It reviews the behaviour of member states in a series of critical situations and multilateral institutions. It explores their implications for the political cleavages among the member states and for the dynamics of integration.
