This thesis analyzes the international political actorness of the Union with an emphasis on Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) to generate the international political actor capability on behalf of the Union.

Tınas, Murat; Çıtak Aytürk, Zana Ayşe; Department of International Relations (2009)
This thesis aims to examine the European Union (EU) as a normative power in the context of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) through case studies of Morocco and Egypt.
