Book abstract:

This volume charts the development of the European Union as an international player in world affairs in its own right and not just the sum of its many and increasing parts. That process has largely been influenced by the needs of the Union to develop a policy towards the Middle East, which is the real substance of this work.

Organised in three parts: Part I offers an introduction to EU as an international player and to the Arab Middle East. The developments in European - Middle Eastern relations between 1950-1991 are the subject of Part II. The challenges facing the EU and the Middle East are given careful consideration in Part III and the authors recognise the dominating influence of the USA in the region as an inhibiting omnipresence.

The work will interest students and scholars of European Studies and policy makers in European integration.

Søren Dosenrode is Jean Monnet Professor of European Politics and Director of the Institute for History and International Studies, Aalborg University. Anders Stubkjaer holds an MA in International Studies and is a former External Lecturer in International Politics at Aalborg University.
