Urfan Khaliq analyses the theory and practice of the European Union’s ‘ethical foreign policy’, arguing that current practices dilute the impact and efficacy of Union policies but that an effort which is at times effective is being made to protect certain values in the Union’s international relations. Beginning with an investigation of the international rules authorising or obliging the Union/Community or the Member States to promote certain values in third countries or take action to protect them, Khaliq goes on to examine the limits under international law which constrain such policies.

The issues are then assessed from a Union/Community law perspective, and the importance attached to ethical values and their relationship with other priorities and objectives is analysed in the context of relations with Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The European Community’s humanitarian aid policy is also discussed.

  • Issues are examined from both an EU law and a public international law perspective, allowing the reader to see how EU law and public international law interact.
  • Uses literature from a variety of non-legal disciplines to explaining how legal issues affect the policy choices and practices of the Union
  • Analyses EU practice and policy vis-à-vis states such as Israel, Pakistan and Burma, thus making clear the EU’s role in key third countries as far as global affairs are concerned
