Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly analyses the literature published on the European Community/European Union (EC/EU) at the United Nations (UN) to give an idea of the work that has been carried out. It examines the situation in post-Maastricht days. The chapter presents the studies that look at the EU representation at the UN in globo for the post-Treaty on European Union (TEU) period. Concerning the global approach of looking at the EU at the UN, the chapter presents a recent publication by the European Commission. The publication describes the EU internal processes and allows conclusions on the self-perception of the Union's actorness on the East River. A couple of researchers approached the issue by looking at a single European Union Member States (EU MS) or a subgroup of EU MS. This produced important results by showing the underlying national interests and EU-group-internal quarrels at UN headquarters.

Keywords: European Commission; European Community/European Union (EC/EU); European Union Member States (EU MS); UN headquarters
