Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2009.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. The European Union (EU) has during the past decades developed into a unique actor in international relations. This development notwithstanding, International Relations scholarship has been slow with catching up and defining what influence the EU may have on international affairs in general and security outcomes in particular. The literature has furthermore paid almost no attention to the diplomatic actions of the EU, despite the fact that there on a daily basis are a vast number of diplomatic steps taken by the Union in order to affect security issues globally. These actions are examined and their effects discussed and measured on a scale from no success to success in an attempt to illustrate (a) the gap in the literature and (b) the actual effects of the actions themselves and their impact on the EU as a player in international relations with true 'actorness' on par with nation-states.
