Energy Security: Europe's New Foreign Policy Challenge by Richard Youngs

By Richard Youngs

The geopolitics of oil and fuel have made a wonderful go back to the overseas political time table. the eu Union (EU) has famous the significance of incorporating strength safeguard extra systematically into overseas coverage. It has devoted itself to pursuing an power protection coverage according to industry interdependence, eu cohesion and long term governance advancements in manufacturer states. In delivering the 1st large, international overview of the overseas coverage dimensions of european strength protection, this booklet considers how a ways those commitments were applied. analyzing how the EU’s basic method of power defense has performed out within the particular political contexts of other international locations and areas, unique gains of the ebook contain: a radical research of present ecu ideas in the direction of strength defense, assessing the european as a global actor a key concentrate on the governance constructions of manufacturer states together with the center East; Russia, crucial Asia and the Caspian, and Sub-Saharan Africa an important addition to debates surrounding markets and geopolitics, informing either diplomacy and foreign political financial system  This e-book should be of curiosity to scholars, students and coverage makers within the fields of European/EU Politics, power politics, overseas coverage and diplomacy.
