Perceptions of the EU in Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. Looking in from the outside


Perceptions of the EU in Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. Looking in from the outside. Edited by: Bachmann, Veit; Müller, Martin (2015). London: Palgrave.

Abstract

This collection examines how the EU is viewed in the two regions at the centre of its geopolitical interest. Focusing on Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, both of which have close and often problematic historical-geographical ties with Europe, the volume provides a critical assessment of how external perceptions from these regions relate to EU policy towards them.
Bringing together a range of internationally renowned scholars, this book provides a conceptual framework for studying the EU's geopolitical role and examines perceptions of the EU in Georgia, Ukraine, Kenya and Senegal. Highlighting both the importance of understanding external viewpoints and the value of comparative research in order to better capture the various facets of the EU's geopolitical role and identity, it is particularly sensitive to persisting unequal power relations and Eurocentrism as well as to the changes in perceptions that have emerged in the wake of financial crisis.
