The EU in the Economic and Social Arrangements of the United Nations System
AbstractThe article deals with the role of the EU in the Economic and Social arrangements of the United Nations system. Looking at the main UN organisations in the area of economic and social affairs concerned with development and humanitarian problems, the author identifies the relation of the EU and its member states to these bodies as a much neglected dimension of EuropeÕs external relations. He suggests a research agenda for exploring the changing pattern in the multilateral relationships in a range of the economic and social organisations of the United Nations. This, he argues, would move into new territory on relations between regional and global international institutions. In this context, the symbiotic relationship between regionalisation and globalisation could be spelled out in unusually specific terms.
