A Giant or a Dwarf? The Role of the European Union in the Global Political Economy

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

    Abstract

    EU may appear to be a giant when it can act on behalf of a united Europe, but usually it is hampered by conflicting member state interests. The EU economic and administrative resources for foreign and trade policy are quite small (on level with one of its major member states) and the hopes in many parts of the world for an EU which can balance the US power are unrealistic.
