The European Union and Multilateral Governance
Assessing EU Participation in United Nations Human Rights and Environmental Fora
Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics
'Everyone agrees that multilateralism matters. But virtually no one has probed the interactions between the two most prominent multilateral actors, the UN system and the European Union. This volume's hard-hitting essays fill the knowledge gap by providing expert and candid views about contemporary global human rights and environmental governance.'
- Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor ofPolitical Science, The City University of New York's Graduate Center, USA
'Human rights and the environment are central domains of EU foreign policy. How successful is the EU in pursuing these goals within UN bodies and conferences? The interdisciplinary approach of this book provides surprising insights and practical policy recommendations for EU foreign policy makers in the post Lisbon treaty era.'
- Manfred Nowak, Professor and University Chair for InternationalHuman Righst Law, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, University of Vienna
'This valuable contribution expands considerably our understanding of EU external relations in the UN system. Scholars and policy-makers alike will benefit from the skilful development and application of the authors' interdisciplinary conceptual framework.'
