Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at the role that the European Union (EU) plays in economic diplomacy. The chapter provides a general framework for assessing the factors that shape a range of relevant EU policies; it cannot, and does not, deal with specific negotiations, in which a range of sectoral and member state variables would be important. It discusses the role that the EU plays in economic diplomacy. This differs from the economic diplomacy that is played by national states in that the EU's role is essentially to facilitate; unlike national governments, the EU does not promote national companies. With the progressive extension of its competence and internal framework rules, however, the EU has constrained member states' national champion policies and continues to constrain member states' commercial policies.

Keywords:economic diplomacy; EU member states; European Union (EU); national companies
