This is a book about conflict: conflict between a country with limits to its international influence - Australia - and a new international actor with enormous presence on the world stage - the European Union. Australians often perceive the EU as a monolithic, negative and obstructionist bloc, unleashing regulations and protectionism upon the world. Yet Australia's engagement with the EU is well ahead of Australian public opinion about Europe. These changes spring not only from changes in Australia, but from Europe's expanding role in trade and politics. In this lively examination of Australia's relationship with the increasingly powerful EU, Professor Philomena Murray provides a fresh and comprehensive perspective on politics and trade, old security and new security. She critically assesses how engagement between the EU and Australia has developed over the past few decades - from narrow concerns with agricultural trade to the newer challenges of terrorism. And she argues that the realisation of the relationship will affect Australia's role both in this region and the world.
