What Kind of Europe?

This chapter examines the relationships of the European Union with the United States and the rest of the world, focusing on trade policies, preferential trade agreements with various countries, and common foreign and security policy (CFSP). It argues that the EU remains a political dwarf despite being an economic giant. European political cooperation in the form of the CFSP was aimed at paving the transition to an international political role. However, many Europeans were not ready to accept the consequences for national sovereignty, and failed to agree on how the CFSP would operate in the context of the Atlantic alliance. Deepening integration and rapid changes in the external environment could accelerate the pace.
