Abstract

The main objective of this panel is to analyze how EU foreign policy is shaped by ideas, strategic culture and more globally to provide some ideational incentives on EU’s external action in today’s multipolar world. First, the Panel examines whether the changing character of strategic culture leads to convergence towards a collective EU strategic culture or rather continuity of national strategic cultures. Second, the papers in this Panel inquire into the idea of ‘otherness’, identifying some important limitations of the EU Common Security and Defence Policy. Third, the link between populism and foreign policy and the potential consequences in the case of EU CFSP are assessed. To this end, it also investigates the normative role which the EU should play against a background of multilevel contestation of EU CFSP. To delve into the intrinsic dynamics of these transformational forces, the Panel concludes with a discussion of internal dynamics of contestation, member states divergence or disengagement.
