Europe in the World
European External Action Service and National Diplomacies Project
The EPC and the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA) have launched a joint research project on ‘The European External Action Service (EEAS) and National Diplomacies’.
Analysis of the EEAS is essential in order to understand the ways in which the European Union engages with the world. This project examines the relations between the EEAS and the Member States, and includes case studies to be conducted by experts in Brussels and in 15 Member States, and is assisted by a high-level steering committee. The final results of the project will be presented to stakeholders in spring 2013.
The project is co-directed by Rosa Balfour, Head of Europe in the World programme, and Kristi Raik, Researcher at FIIA.
