Show Summary Details


In order to provide further insight into how and to what degree major European security actors converge and diverge, this book presents an extensive and thorough analysis of official standpoints. The focus is on the relationship between the EU and Russia, and also on bilateral relations between Russia and the major EU member states. The empirical enquiry contrasts Russia's standpoints on security with those of the EU bureaucracy and with those of the three major EU member states: France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. This chapter examines the possibility of a pan-European approach, competing constructions of security, ‘EU-Europe’ as a security actor, and the background to EU-Russia relations.
