The European Union and Democracy Promotion: A Critical Global Assessment

By Richard Youngs (13/09/2010) Book

The European Union has made firm commitments to democratic reforms and human rights initiatives around the world. This book examines the efficacy of these efforts, particularly in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Ukraine, Central Asia, Morocco, Iraq and the Persian Gulf, and Nigeria.

Designed to spur debate on how to incorporate democracy and human rights initiatives into the mainstream foreign policy of the EU and its member states, this study edited by Richard Youngs challenges the standard view that the EU has established itself as a distinctive normative power and offers concrete policy recommendations for strengthening the EU's efforts.
