Australia and the European Superpower: Engaging with the European Union
This book argues: first, the EU has wrought deep-rooted changes within its constituent states, in a process known as Europeanisation; second, the EU is a global player—albeit of uncertain nature—with increasing weight; and third, the EU is developing a global agenda that will have long-term implications for Australia.
In this lively examination of Australia's relationship with the increasingly powerful EU, Professor Philomena Murray provides a fresh and comprehensive perspective on politics and trade, old security and new security. She critically assesses how engagement between the EU and Australia has developed over the past few decades- from narrow concerns with agricultural trade to the newer challenges of terrorism. And she argues that the realisation of the relationship will affect Australia's role both in this region and the world.
