About

Maria Giulia Amadio Viceré will present her article addressing the occurrence of informal groups of EU member states in EU approaches to conflicts and crises. Despite the Lisbon Treaty’s attempts to further centralize member states’ foreign and security policies, subsets of member states have frequently steered EU foreign and security policy by cooperating with non-EU countries in international contact groups. This phenomenon is unprecedented in polities that share common features with the EU, namely federal regimes and international organizations. Yet there is no systematic knowledge about it. This article aims to map the shared features of internal differentiated cooperation of these groups that may influence the evolution and understanding of EU foreign and security policy. To do so, it examines EU approaches to external conflicts and crises. In particular, the article zooms in on two sub-cases in Europe’s eastern surroundings, Kosovo and Ukraine; and on two sub-cases in Europe’s southern surroundings, Libya and Syria.
