The role of the EU delegation

Coming soon!

Module by Katie Verlin Laatikainen, Adelphi University

This module will focus on the who, how, what and why of EU diplomacy at the UN.  In looking at the question of who, we see that EU diplomacy involves an intricate balance of different institutional and member state diplomats at the UN in New York.  Secondly we look at the process--the how and what of EU diplomacy in New York.  EU diplomacy involves internal practices of coordination, but also external diplomacy reflected in representation and outreach.  One key area of UN multilateralism—facilitation—is used to show the continuing interaction of the EUDEL and Member states in a common approach to UN multilateralism.  Finally we examine the why:  what are the consequences of the changes in EU diplomacy, for others, for the EU and for the UN?  This module incorporates interviews with the Head of the EU Delegation to the UN.
