about

The notion of Normative Power Europe (NPE) is that the European Union as an ’ideational’ actor is characterised by common principles and acting to diffuse norms within international relations. This volume highlights the utility of NPE in explaining EU policy processes and outcomes through a set of case studies and critiques.
RICHARD WHITMAN is Professor of Politics, Department of European Studies and Modern Languages, University of Bath, UK.
