The Concept of Normative Power in World Politics

Ian Manners

Publikation: Working paperForskning

Abstract

The social sciences have many different understandings of ‘normative power'. The purpose of this brief is to help clarify the concept of normative power in world politics as developed in European Union (EU) studies over the last ten years.

The brief uses a five-point conceptualisation of normative power as being ideational; involving principles, actions, and impact; as well as having broader consequences in world politics. For each point both a general observation about world politics and a specific comment about the EU is made.
