A very timely and topical volume concerned with the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on the European Union's (EU) capacity to further develop a distinctive foreign policy in accordance with the various policy instruments necessary to fulfil its role as a global actor. This edited volume brings together a host of scholars in the fields of European Studies and International Relations whose contributions offer both innovative theoretical perspectives and new empirical insights. Overall, the book emphasizes the question of the EU's evolving legitimacy and efficiency as a foreign policy and diplomatic actor on the regional and global stage. This shared concern is clearly reflected in the book's three-pronged structure: Part 1 - the EU a controversial global political actor in an emergent multipolar world with contributions from A.Gamble, M.Telo and J.Howorth; Part 2 - After the Lisbon Treaty: the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the European External Action Service, includes chapters from C.Lequesne, C.Carta and H.Mayer; Part 3 - R.Gillespie, F.Ponjaert, G.Grevi, Z.Chen, H.Nakamura and U.Salma Bava assess the CFSP and the EU's external relations in action. Foreword by S.E.M P. Vimont. As a result, the book is a useful and relevant contribution to European Union studies and International Relations' research and teaching. It offers any interested party informed and comprehensive insights into EU foreign policy at a time when it seeks to undertake an increased role in World affairs and this despite economic crisis.

Parliaments risk becoming the main losers of internationalisation; a process that privileges executives and experts. Still, parliamentarians have developed a range of responses to catch up with international decision-making: they coordinate their actions with other parliamentarians; engage in international parliamentary forums; and some even opt to pursue political careers at the supranational level, such as in the European Parliament. This volume provides a thorough empirical examination of how an internationalising context drives parliamentarians to engage in inter-parliamentary coordination; how it affects their power positions vis-a-vis executive actors; among themselves; and in society in general. Building upon these empirical insights, the book assesses whether parliamentary democracy can remain sustainable under these changing conditions. Indeed, if parliaments are, and remain, central to our understanding of modern democracy, it is of crucial importance to track their responses to internationalisation, the fragmentation of political sovereignty, and the proliferation of multilevel politics. 'Multi-level processes beyond the nation-state are often criticised for their democratic deficit. This rich edited collection assesses carefully the potential and limits of an original remedy for this serious problem: the empowerment of the circuit of representative democracy through the constitution of a multi-level parliamentary field. A series of fine empirical studies by a team of international scholars highlights the diverse and complex configurations of such a field. The book provides a balanced and fine-grained account of the role of inter-parliamentary networks as a countervailing power to unaccountable supranational governance.' Professor Yannis Papadopoulos Institut d'Etudes Politiques et Internationales, Universite de Lausanne, Switzerland 'Editors Crum and Fossum have put together an innovative collection of papers on the increasingly topical issue of the Multilevel Parliamentary Field. The collection covers a broad range of topics (policy domains, levels and actors) and offers contributions from an excellent selection of consolidated and younger scholars. There's engaging material in every chapter, and rather than responding conclusively to the question of whether parliaments are the losers in globalisation and European integration, the editors leave the question open-ended - an implicit invitation to further research.' Professor Carlos Closa Montero Institute for Public Goods and Policies (IPP), Centre of Human and Social Sciences and Policies (IPP), Centre of Human and Social Sciences (CCHS) and Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).

As a fresh examination of the values and principles that inform EU Foreign Policy, this book presents a clear and close reading of the EU as an international actor. This up-to-date volume explores the implications of these values and principles on the construction of European Union identity today. It also shows how current debates on European Union foreign policy and on European identity tend to be kept separated as if the process of identity formation had only an internal dimension or it was not related to the external behaviour of an international actor. This new book examines the values and principles that inform EU Foreign Policy in order to achieve a better understanding of the EU as an international actor and to explore implications of these values and principles on the process of the construction of the European Union identity. Conceiving EU Foreign Policy in its broadest context, as a set of political actions that are regarded by external actors as 'EU' actions, the contributors focus on both Pillar I and Pillar II policies, involving EU and member state actions, and material political actions and less material ones such as speech acts. Adopting a multidisciplinary perspective and drawing on political science, political economy, sociology, environmental science and women's studies, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of European studies and politics.

If Europe wants to have a bigger impact on the world, it needs to pool its diplomatic resources. But progress towards a coherent EU foreign policy has been slow. Steven Everts examines the reasons why, and offers an agenda for reform.
