Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

With the Treaty of Lisbon and the creation of a European External Action Service, EU Member States have sought to strengthen the EU as an actor on the global stage. Meanwhile, the EU legitimacy crisis, the Syrian war or natural disasters keep on challenging and questioning its effectiveness. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the development, nature and contents of the European foreign policies. It discusses the EU as a foreign policy actor by focusing on the different components of the EU´s external action, the institutions and processes involved in policy-making, their transformation as well as past, current and future challenges.
