Abstract

Since it was first introduced in 2002 the concept of Normative Power Europe (NPE) has been actively and intensively debated by scholars in the fields of European Studies and International Relations. The theory of NPE promotes the idea of the European Union as an 'ideational' actor in global politics characterised by its attempts to promote a set of common principles, and acting to diffuse norms in International Relations. This volume brings together an international group of scholars to examine the methodological, theoretical and empirical challenges in the study of the European Union through NPE. Contributors assess the impact that NPE has had to-date. Collectively the contributions offer new theoretical and methodological perspectives on one of the most widely used and influential ideas in the study of the EU of the last decade.
