"This two-volume project is bound to become a main reference point for anyone interested in the EU’s role in international politics. It combines a diverse set of theoretical and geographical lenses with an overview of different policy areas that is unique in its comprehensiveness. The contributions highlight the main challenge ahead of the EU: to maintain its status as a novel actor in international society while at the same time bolstering its influence." - Thomas Diez, University of Tübingen

“This is the most comprehensive assessment of the EU's role in the world to date. The 32 chapters cover the whole breadth of the EU's external relations, ranging from democracy promotion to trade policy and climate change negotiations. The volumes will be a highly valuable resource for all students and scholars interested in the EU's global role.” - Andreas Dür, University of Salzburg

“The EU as a global actor has become the focus of an increasingly intense academic and policy debate. At a time when many question the coherence, effectiveness and visibility of the Union’s role on the global stage, this comprehensive two-volume study provides clear answers to the institutional, theoretical and public-policy dimensions of that role. These essays contribute in significant ways to enhancing our understanding not simply of the way in which the EU conducts itself internationally, but above all of the scale, complexity and ubiquity of its diplomatic and political presence.” - Jolyon Howorth, Yale University

“The two volumes of Global Power Europe make an outstanding contribution to EU studies by engaging both in theoretical debates and in in-depth empirical analyses. The EU’s distinctive and innovative role in world politics is superbly examined in a wide range of policy areas. Thus, the two volumes will serve as important standard reference books for students and scholars alike.” -  Stefan A. Schirm, Ruhr-University Bochum

“The European Union is now one of the most complex and active global powers, and its reach extends further than many had ever imagined possible. The "Global Power Europe" collection examines the totality of the EU's global "actorness" and influence, using a variety of theoretical insights and sophisticated case studies of EU civilian, economic, security, and ethical policies.  It should become a major reference work for EU scholars and policy-makers.“ - Michael E. Smith, University of Aberdeen
