The constitutive nature of values, images and principles in the European Union

Ian Manners

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


What I wish to do in the rest of this chapter is to follow Sonia Lucarelli’s conceptual introduction with a more conceptual discussion of the values and principles which constitute the EU as a ‘hybrid polity’ (Manners 2002: 240). My more constitutive discussions of European values and the principles within the EU will serve as a useful foundation for Knud Erik Jørgensen’s following chapter on theorising VIPs in foreign policy.
