The European Union and the United Nations in Global Governance

Written by a leading expert in the field, this book analyses the complex relations between the European Union (EU) as a regional organization and the United Nations (UN) as an international, global governance institution.

The book explores how collaboration between the EU and the UN has evolved and how the two entities collaborate both structurally and in day-to-day work. It shows how the EU acts within institutions such as the United Nations General Assembly and how UN agencies, funds and entities, such as UNHRC, UNICEF and UN Women, interact with the EU and its member states.

Through its analysis, the book demonstrates how, despite recent criticism, patterns of multilateralism and cooperation between regional and international institutions can be central to stable patterns of rules-based regional and global governance.

“This book provides a timely overview of the EU–UN interactions with due emphasis given to the challenges raised by the COVID-19 pandemic on two fundamental pillars of the global multilateral system.” Spyros Blavoukos, Athens University of Economics and Business

Madeleine O. Hosli is Professor of International Relations at Leiden University.
