This course focuses on how the EU and its member states are adapting to an international role in the 21st century. The course will examine the institutions of EU foreign and security policy, the creation of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) and the increasing number of civilian and military crisis management operations. The course assesses the EU's emergent strategy and strategic culture and strands of its foreign policy in action. The course concludes with an assessment of institutional changes as a result of the Lisbon Treaty, in particular the creation of the European External Action Service (EEAS) that have further raised expectations as to the EU's external role.
