Chapter Summary

This chapter explains an European Union (EU) external angle of the representation of the Union's interests at the UN by showing how and to which degree the EU group influences proceedings and organises itself in specific UN bodies. Two bodies are examined: the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). For each session the EU MS produce a document with the thematic priorities they want to pursue in the UNGA. Until a couple of years ago this framework text was a lengthy 'Memorandum', which delineated the whole range of Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) policies. The chapter illustrates the confrontational and consensus-oriented cultures within the UNGA Committees and the consequences for EU cooperation, coordination and representation.

Keywords: Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP); EU cooperation; United Nations General Assembly (UNGA); United Nations Security Concil (UNSC)
