Between Actor and Presence: The European Union and the Future for the Transatlantic Relationship

University of Ottawa Press, 2001 - Political Science - 251 pages
Historically an integral part of Canadian foreign affairs, the European community currently poses something of a challenge for Canadian relations: either as an actor or as a presence. This book situates Canadian interest within the larger contest of political change taking place in Europe, covering several seminal aspects of European political integration including political relations, the process of integration and enlargement, military and defence links, and trade ties.
Presenting a critical view of an important and often overlooked political relationship, this collection of essays sets in context the changing nature of this historical relationship and the relative influence of existing institutions.
