The author examines to what extent the current foreign energy policy can function in reality. Based on her detailed analysis, she provides recommendations for action for political actors.

In recent years, calls for a foreign energy policy for the European Union have been increasing. Empirically, however, an independent European policy has not yet emerged - although its urgency as well as official demands in foreign energy policy to "speak with a common voice" would suggest so. The author examines the reasons for this and the extent to which the current foreign energy policy functions effectively in reality. Based on her detailed analysis, she provides recommendations for action for political actors to create successful policies. The intensive examination of primary sources and the numerous interviews with decision-makers allow deep insights into the black box of Brussels' decision-making bodies and make European foreign energy policy more transparent. The theory-based approach to this new field of political science research means that the work represents a successful link between theory and practice.

The work is part of the series Europäische Schriften, Volume 95.
