Rethinking Europe in a non-European World (RENEW)
Principal Investigator: Dr Kalypso Nicolaïdis
The project aims to ‘de-centre’ the study of Europe’s role in the world and to question Euro-narcissim (and delusions of grandeur) in global politics. The project will analyse how non-European actors and actors in the borderlands between Europe and the outside evaluate the European Union’s foreign policies, perceive its status in international politics and make sense of its attempts to diffuse its norms. Additionally, the project will set the aforementioned analysis in a broader context of comparative regionalism.
The main output for the project was the publication of the book 'Echoes of Empire: Memory, Identity and Colonial Legacies', edited by Kalypso Nicolaidis, Berny Sebe and Gabrielle Maas.
The ‘Rethinking Europe in a non-European World (RENEW)’ project report for 2014-2015 is available to read in the CIS Annual Report here.
The project is funded by the John Fell OUP Research Fund.
