Beschreibung

xiv, 205pp. What role can and should Europe play in the world? This analysis of international politics offers an exposition of the persistent features of power politics which Europe, in the form of the EU, should increasingly have to acknowledge, or adapt to. Using the resources of both political philosophy and diplomatic history, the book urges that the internal developments of western Europe over the last 50 years are making a common standpoint in foreign affairs increasingly necessary. Europe, it asserts, cannot remain preoccupied by international affairs when its future depends on adjusting to an international order over which it has only limited control.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Preoccupation with the EU's internal affairs risks ignoring the extent to which Europe itself will now be shaped by foreign affairs. The future of Europe lies in its own hands only if it organizes itself to adjust to events in a world diplomatic system over which it can hope to have only limited control. The global setting in which Europe will have to find a place is the reverse image of its post-1945 direction. Whereas Western Europe's states have renounced 'power politics' among themselves, the rest of the world has done no such thing. The basis of inter-state relations remains remarkably similar to Rousseau's description as the 'constant action and reaction of powers in continued agitation'. Failure to recognize the persistence of power politics is now among the principal obstacles to Europe's future. It is as if recovery from the nemesis of mid-century has produced hubris towards its end. Europe finds it hard to accept that it must coexist with the outside world on terms increasingly set not by its own virtuous example of reconciliation among old enemies and the creation of political union, but by states who see little reason to follow its example. More fundamental than blueprints and policies for European Monetary Union and the European Union enlargement, Europe needs a trustworthy grasp of the world's foreign affairs to which its diplomacy must apply and its statecraft contribute.
