This paper revisits the familiar question of the distinctive nature of EU foreign policy
and external relations. It begins from a similar starting point to that from which much of the
existing literature on the EU as a normative or civilian power begins, in assuming that there is
something fairly distinctive about the way the EU conducts its external relations. But it departs
from much of that literature in eschewing any claim that the EU is in some way more virtuous
than other international actors, or that it is motivated mainly by values, principles or norms,
rather than by its own interests. Rejecting the assumption of a sharp distinction between the
EU?s promotion of values and its pursuit of interests, the analysis focuses instead on what I
call the EU?s governance mode of foreign policy, namely its tendency to act collectively rather
than unilaterally, and to establish and institutionalize stable external governance systems on a
wide range of issue areas.
