Manners: "Understanding the EU in Global Politics"

IAN MANNERS, AMSTERDAM, GÆSTEFORELÆSNING

Professor Ian Manners gives lecture to Amsterdam ACCESS EUROPE on "Understanding the EU in Global Politics: Reflecting on the Study of Normative Power".

Professor Ian Manners gives  international guest lecture to Amsterdam ACCESS, one of the world's leading centres for European Studies on 'Understanding the EU in Global Politics: Reflecting on the Study of Normative Power', at the University of Amsterdam and the Free University of Amsterdam on 12 February 2015.

How does the presence of the European Union shape the norms and normality, policies and polities of global politics? It will be argued that understanding the EU in global politics involves not just the study of EU external actions, but also critical reflection on the means of analysis and the sociology of knowledge and production of EU external actions. In an era of EU crisis, such a reflection is essential for the health of the study of the EU and, perhaps, the EU itself. Beste Isleyen, postdoctoral research at ACCESS EUROPE, will provide a first comment on the lecture.
