Routledge Handbook of EU-Middle East relations


O tej książce nie można nie wspomnieć, chociażby z prostego powodu: w jej powstanie jest zaangażowanych wiele osób z grona natolińskich wykładowców. Zatem bez zbędnej zwłoki - tuż po recenzji Pani Rektor Mogherini - wklejam szczegółowy spis treści i informacje z okładki, do strony wydawcy natomiast można się udać tędy.

"A lot has been written on the European Union and the Middle East, but nothing as complete and original as this handbook. It covers everything that is relevant to know, analyse, discuss: from history to the most recent policy developments, utilising extremely innovative angles, and connecting the many different dots that are needed to draw the most complete picture of such a complex relation, between such complex regions. Original viewpoints, diversity of perspectives, a very sound academic approach matched with a unique attention to practice and policymaking, make this handbook an indispensable reference for all those who study the Middle East and the EU, work on it, or are simply interested in deepening their understanding of such a fascinating topic. You will love reading it, even when you will not agree with some of its analysis. You will use it again and again. And you will always find something new, unexpected and precious in it." Federica Mogherini, Rector of the College of Europe and former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

Book Jacket: "EU-Middle East relations are multifaceted, varied and complex, shaped by historical, political, economic, migratory, social and cultural dynamics. Covering these relations from a broad perspective that captures continuities, ruptures and entanglements, this handbook provides a clearer understanding of trends, thus contributing to a range of different turns in International Relations. The interdisciplinary and diverse assessments through which readers may grasp a more nuanced comprehension of the intricate entanglements in EU-Middle East relations are carefully provided in these pages by leading experts in the various (sub)fields, including academics, think-tankers, as well as policymakers. The volume offers original reflections on historical constructions, theoretical approaches, multilateralism and geopolitical perspectives, contemporary issues, peace, security and conflict and development, economics, trade and society. The chapters adopt various research methodologies organised into six main sections: History; Theoretical perspectives; Multilateralism and Geopolitical perspectives; MENA-EU relations in the contemporary world; Peace, security, and conflict in the Middle East; and Development, economics, trade and societal issues. This Handbook provides an entry point for an informed exploration of the multiple themes, actors, structures, policies and processes that mould EU-Middle East relations. It is designed for policymakers, academics and students of all levels interested in politics, international and global studies, contemporary history, regionalism and area studies."--PUBLISHER'S NOTE.
