    Description

    How do crises produce changes in specific European Union foreign policy areas, and how should we conceptualise these policy changes?

    This book provides a novel analytical framework that serves to investigate the way in which the EU changes its foreign policy after crisis. Ikani adapts the existing theorising of foreign policy change to a single framework applicable to the EU context, providing readers with a toolbox to both explain the process of change and measure the policy change that follows. The framework is developed through an investigation of two important EU foreign policy change episodes, taking place after the Arab uprisings and the Ukraine conflict, and test-driven in three recent cases of EU foreign policy change after crisis.

    The volume presents a novel typology of EU foreign policy change, advancing on the fields of foreign policy analysis, public policy studies and International Relations. In doing so, it explains both the decision-making process leading to policy change, and the variation in change outcomes following this process. Further to offering those researching the EU foreign policy response to crisis with timely and empirically rich accounts of five recent change episodes, this book adds to the literature by suggesting two forms of EU foreign policy change, symbolic change and constructive ambiguity, which unlike previously argued form frequent and important outcomes of the decision-making process.

    Reviews

    'The book provides a timely analysis of the impact of crisis on EU foreign policy and the ENP. [...] For academics interested in the details of foreign policy change, this book is a welcome contribution that challenges thin conceptualizations of this phenomenon as a cumulative process. And for policy-makers who are unsure how to deal with today's challenges in the EU's neighbourhood, this book is a useful reflection upon past decisions. Ikani recognizes the opportunities and constraints of the institutional and temporal factors and encourages policy-makers to actively shape the substance and direction of change in the future.'
