Relational Power Europe. Conflict Management and the Future of EU Foreign and Security Policy RICCARDO ALCARO and POL BARGUÉS

The final JOINT research output, the culmination of a 3-year research effort, analyses how the EU has dealt with crises and conflicts in the last 15 years including Russia’s invasions of Ukraine, Iran’s nuclear dispute, Syria’s civil war – to understand the nature of the EU’s role in international security. In this context, the EU can be considered a ‘relational power’, an entity dynamically constituted by its interaction with its internal and domestic context. The paper also speculates about how the EU could navigate the agitated waters of competitive geopolitics in three scenarios, one of institutional reform, one of policy adjustments, and one of governance structure.
