Module overview

European countries and the European Union (EU) as a collective actor seek to co-shape the international order and forms of global governance. The EU, its member-states and associated countries face new uncertainties and risks, however, from normative and economic to political and security/military challenges and threats. These mark a shift from security to risk since the end of the Cold War which in retrospect appears as a stable environment for Western European international influence in a US-dominated Western world. This module critically examines how to conceptualize Europe’s and the EU’s changing role in international relations. It also addresses Europe’s and the EU’s evolving and sometimes conflictual relations with other states and world regions in an increasingly multipolar world.
