The Obs researcher Laia Mestres has recently published the article ‘Europa en el mundo ¿De potencia normativa a una verdadera Unión de la defensa?’ (Europe in the World: From a Normative Power to a true European Defence Union) in the journal Información Comercial Española (nº903). 

Abstract: During the first decade of the twenty-first century, the European Union International identity was characterized by externalizing internal values of the Union such as solidarity, humanism, or justice, which are nowadays facing an international process of norm contestation. The eroding international order has delivered a serious blow to the core interests and the identity of EU foreign policy itself. In this article we will address the evolution of the Union as an international actor departing from a new foreign policy narrative. This new narrative is less focused on exporting norms, and more oriented towards developing tools for a veritable Common Security and Defence Policy.
