Since the European Union’s inception, its external powers have continuously increased. These increased external powers, when exercised, result in an acceleration of national politics being locked into a tightening net of EU law. However, individuals have better control over international relations, in particular over the conclusion of international agreements, when the EU acts externally than when the Member States act externally. In her inaugural lecture, Christina Eckes will argue that EU external relations are key to addressing the public disenchantment with the European integration project.
