Abstract

This paper intends to discuss the existence of a European Union’s (EU) international political identity, understood as a set of characteristics that define the EU Foreign and Security policy’s nature and tools, and the possibility of this model being exported to other regional actors that could assume the same characteristics. The aim is, firstly, to present an analytical framework that allows understanding the nature of this European international political identity. This by observing how it is perceived internally, by the EU Member States and institutions, as well as externally, by other actors of the international system. Secondly, if this international political identity model could be applied to other regional actors, by defining the characteristics that they should assume and applicability to non-European contexts.
