This authoritative textbook gives a comprehensive account of the European Union's foreign policy. Going beyond the typical focus on the Common Foreign and Security Policy and Common Security and Defence Policy, Keukeleire and Delreux demonstrate the scope and diversity of the EU's foreign policy and show how areas such as trade, development, environment and energy are inextricable elements of it. The book examines the EU's key foreign relations - with its neighbourhood, with the US, China and Russia, and with the emerging powers - and argues that the EU's foreign policy needs to be understood not only as a response to crises and conflicts, but also as a means of shaping international structures and influencing long-term processes.  Up to date, jargon-free and supported by its own website, this systematic and innovative appraisal of this key policy area is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of EU Foreign Policy.
