About The European Union in International Organisations and Global Governance

The European Union is a key participant in international organisations with its involvement taking different forms, ranging from full membership to mere observer. Moreover, there is also not only one status of observer, but different ones depending on the constituent charters of the organisations. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the participation of the EU in five international organisations: the UN, the ILO, the WTO, the WHO and the WIPO. It identifies its role and influence in diverse areas of global governance, such as foreign policy, peace, human rights, social rights, trade, health and intellectual property.

EU and international experts, diplomats and scholars have contributed to this book to give an overview of the different aspects linked to the participation of the EU in these organisations and to the coordination that takes place internally with its Member States. They also examine the EU's actual influence in the various areas and its contribution to global governance. The combination of these two dimensions allows the work to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the participation of the EU in these five international organisations.

The book provides valuable insights for scholars, policymakers and is useful for representatives of other international organisations and civil society actors.

Reviews

“The book will be of interest to scholars of IR, institutional cooperation, European Politics, and international organisations. In particular, it will benefit those readers who want to attain a deeper understanding of institutional cooperation in global governance issues linked to trade, labour, health, and intellectual property rights among many others.” –  Dr Siddharth Tripathi, ACUNS

“The collection is certainly to be welcomed as it has filled a serious lacuna in the existing studies on legal role of EU in global affairs.” –  R.A.Wessel, YEL

“The book is notable for the emphasis on the plurality of perspectives on the subject matter.” –  Giulio Vesperini, Rivista Trimestrale del diritto Europeo

“The collection is to be welcomed as it has filled a serious lacuna in existing studies on the legal role of EU in global affairs.” –  Ramses A. Wessel, Prof of International Law,University of Twente, The Netherlands, Yearbook of European Law

“One of the main qualities of the book remains the comprehensive study that is made of the five international organizations. In addition, the professional diversity of the authors - who are not exclusively from the academic field - undoubtedly contributes to providing a practical perspective on the interactions between the EU and the organizations under study...this book provides a better understanding of the singularity of the representation of the EU in each of the organizations studied. (Translated from the original French)” –  Mathieu Vaugeois, Revue québécoise de droit international
