The study of the EU's security and defence policy has until now lacked a comprehensive yet thorough and accessible volume on theoretical debates in the field. This timely volume addresses this and is an engaging assessment of the discussions about the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy. It brings together leading scholars in the field who present their respective theoretical viewpoints and illustrate how each has informed their empirical explorations. Pluralistic in its approach, the volume emphasizes the role of conceptual diversity for better explaining the EU's CSDP. It is a broad-range up-to-date survey that speaks to many of the theoretical debates in the field, including mainstream (neorealism, liberal institutionalism and strategic studies, sociological institutionalism), less mainstream (consistent constructivism and structural constructivism) and critical, inspired by neomarxism, Foucauldian approaches and the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu.

  • Introduction
  • The impact of climate change on security
  • The EU's security identity
  • The EU's climate security response
  • EU climate and energy policies : foundation or diversion?
  • Climate and European defence strategies
  • Climate and EU conflict prevention
  • The geo-economics of climate security.
It is now commonly asserted that climate change will fundamentally change international relations. It has been predicted that global warming will increase conflict within and between states, intensify food insecurity, menace the global trading system and unleash waves of migration. As a result governments are beginning to incorporate these warnings into their foreign policy initiatives. The appropriateness of their incipient responses needs to be examined in finer detail. This book looks at the impact of climate change on European Union (EU) security policy. It explores how governments are reconfiguring their geo-strategy and broader international relations in the wake of climate change warnings. The book demonstrates that although many aspects of EU foreign policies have begun to change, 'climate security' is not yet accorded unequivocal or sufficient priority. In doing so, Youngs argues that if climate change policies are to have significant effect they can no longer be treated as a separate area of policy but must be incorporated into the more mainstream debates pertinent to EU common foreign and security policy (CFSP). This book will be of key interest to students, scholars and practitioners of climate change and policy, energy and environmental policy, EU governance and foreign policy, European studies, international relations, geography, security studies/policy and environmental economics.

"Cet ouvrage étudie l'évolution récente de la politique étrangère et de défense de l'Union européenne dans sa complexité historique. Peut-elle jouer un rôle important ou rester ballottée entre les acteurs ? La construction européenne a garanti, soixante années durant, la paix et la stabilité sur notre continent. Cette situation a permis à l'Europe de renaître de ses cendres et de construire une zone de prospérité et de bien-être, avec un modèle social unique. L'Europe n'est pas une forteresse et ne saurait se satisfaire d'un monde où subsistent tant de déséquilibres. L'objectif de l'Union est de donner aux pays et populations défavorisés les moyens de se développer, autrement dit s'attaquer aux sources mêmes de la pauvreté et de la vulnérabilité. Cette action suppose la mise en oeuvre de politiques qui permettent de contribuer à consolider la démocratie, l'État de droit, la bonne gestion des affaires publiques et le respect des droits de l'homme. Car le développement ne va pas sans la démocratie et cet ouvrage montre que les droits de l'homme restent une exigence majeure pour l'Union qui joue un rôle moteur dans ce domaine. La question principale à laquelle l'auteur cherche la réponse, c'est dans quelle mesure l'Union peut-elle devenir un acteur international. Comment l'Union peut-elle transformer sa puissance économique en une puissance politique dans le système international du XXIe siècle ? Comment concevons-nous la coopération entre les institutions de l'Union européenne et celles de l'OTAN ?."--P. [4] of cover.

"Les attentats du 13 novembre 2015 à Paris, ont révélé au grand public les mutations des menaces immédiates qui pèsent sur notre pays. Les groupes de travail de l'association des auditeurs et cadres des hautes études de l'armement scrutent quasiment en permanence les évolutions géostratégiques qui, partout dans le monde, et bien sûr aussi sur le territoire national, peuvent avoir un impact sur les intérêts français et la sécurité de nos concitoyens. Ces travaux servent de référence à la journée bisannuelle Entretiens armements et sécurité. Les travaux dont il est rendu compte ici ont été menés essentiellement en 2014 et 2015. La menace terroriste sur le sol national avait déjà été identifiée comme une préoccupation majeure, elle est ici traitée sous différents aspects, tant nationaux que dans les cadres élargis de l'Union européenne et de l'Otan. Elle ne peut être comprise que mise en relation avec les enjeux des conflits du Moyen-Orient qui se jouent sur un théâtre d'opérations largement chaotique (imbrication de parties aux intérêts divergents, référentiel n'ayant plus rien à voir avec celui de la guerre just in bellum). La question de la position turque a aussi été identifiée comme un élément clé de la situation. Des sujets plus généraux ont aussi retenu notre attention : éthique du combattant "augmenté", exportations d'armement, maintien de notre capacité technologique en matière d'armements de souveraineté."--Page 4 of cover.

EU foreign and defence policy is largely formulated in the working parties and committees of the Council of the EU and the vast majority of decisions in this field are made by the national diplomats working in the around 35 groups of the CFSP/CSDP. Although the importance of these committees and their participants has been increasingly recognised, we still know relatively little about them. Using an original database of 138 questionnaires and 37 interviews, this book addresses this lack of knowledge, studying what these committees do and how they negotiate and resolve issues. It explores three key areas: * the formulation of the national position; * the identity of CFSP/CSDP policy-makers; * negotiation practices and outputs. In doing so, it provides an innovative observation point from which EU foreign policy can be analysed. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of EU foreign and defence policy, external relations of the EU, European integration and politics, diplomacy and more broadly international relations.

  • The origins and evolution of CSDP
  • The Common Security and Defense Policy within the framework of common foreign and security policy
  • The substantive and institutional framework of Common Security and Defense Policy
  • The policy context of CSDP
  • CSDP military operations
  • CSDP civilian missions

  • Practical and economic underpinnings of CSDP : the case of defence industries.
Presenting the first analytical overview of the legal foundations of the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), this book provides a detailed examination of the law and practice of the EU's security policy. The European Union's security and defence policy has long been the focus of political scientists and international relations experts. However, it has more recently become of increasing relevance to lawyers too. Since the early 2000s, the EU has carried out more than two dozen security and defence missions in Europe, Africa, and Asia. The EU institutions are keen to stress the security dimension of other external policies also, such as development cooperation, and the Lisbon Treaty introduces a more detailed set of rules and procedures which govern the CSDP. This book provides a legal analysis of the Union's CSDP by examining the nexus of its substantive, institutional, and economic dimensions. Taking as its starting point the historical development of security and defence in the context of European integration, it outlines the legal framework created by the rules and procedures introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon. It examines the military operations and civilian missions undertaken by the Union, and looks at the policy context within which they are carried out. It analyses the international agreements concluded in this field and explores the links between the CSDP and other external policies of the Union.

"This book analyzes the EU's largest ever Common Security and Defence Policy civilian mission (EU-LEX). It is the biggest state-building commitment in Kosovo with a focus on the judicial field (rule of law). This choice is based on two main premises: to look at both strengths and weaknesses of a policy (CSDP) established sixteen years ago, while questioning whether in its current setup it is working appropriately in high-ethnic politicized settings like Kosovo, or if alternative measures are to be considered. Based on Alex Bellamy's critical approach theory, this research shows the limits third-part interventions face at enabling both local ownership and multiethnicity in high-divided societies. Far from pretending to be exhaustive, this contribution positions itself in the current debates on state-building enterprises with a view to providing for a comprehensive approach, while focusing on EU-LEX as a case-study and leaving room for suggestions and recommendations."-- Back cover.
