EU-Middle East relations are multifaceted, varied and complex, shaped by historical, political, economic, migratory, social and cultural dynamics. Covering these relations from a broad perspective that captures continuities, ruptures and entanglements, this handbook provides a clearer understanding of trends, thus contributing to a range of different turns in international relations.

The interdisciplinary and diverse assessments through which readers may grasp a more nuanced comprehension of the intricate entanglements in EU-Middle East relations are carefully provided in these pages by leading experts in the various (sub)fields, including academics, think-tankers, as well as policymakers. The volume offers original reflections on historical constructions; theoretical approaches; multilateralism and geopolitical perspectives; contemporary issues; peace, security and conflict; and development, economics, trade and society.

This handbook provides an entry point for an informed exploration of the multiple themes, actors, structures, policies and processes that mould EU-Middle East relations. It is designed for policymakers, academics and students of all levels interested in politics, international and global studies, contemporary history, regionalism and area studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Such a comprehensive and multifaceted approach to complex and shifting realities of EU-Middle East relations goes beyond the theoretical or abstract dimension to include pragmatic assessments of both the policy and praxis that have shaped these relations. This handbook provides concerned readers with a critical assessment that illuminates evolutionary and intrinsic developments while charting the course of interactive connectivity that impacted both regions. This handbook is a really valuable resource indeed."

Hanan Ashrawi, Distinguished Palestinian Leader and Former PLO Executive Committee Member

"A lot has been written on the European Union and the Middle East, but nothing as complete and original as this handbook. It covers everything that is relevant to know, analyse, discuss: from history to the most recent policy developments, utilising extremely innovative angles, and connecting the many different dots that are needed to draw the most complete picture of such a complex relation, between such complex regions. Original viewpoints, diversity of perspectives, a very sound academic approach matched with a unique attention to practice and policymaking, make this handbook an indispensable reference for all those who study the Middle East and the EU, work on it, or are simply interested in deepening their understanding of such a fascinating topic. You will love reading it, even when you will not agree with some of its analysis. You will use it again and again. And you will always find something new, unexpected and precious in it."

Federica Mogherini, Rector of the College of Europe and former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy

"This is a remarkable collection of accessible chapters, putting EU-Middle East Relations in a fresh light. This handbook does not shy away from the colonial past in that relationship and manages to capture continuity while noting occasional ruptures. The 61 contributors cover a wide range of topics and offer a rich interdisciplinary approach that make this handbook a significant contribution to scholarship. The flowing writing style, the nuanced analysis of complex cases and the depth of knowledge exhibited in this handbook make it an essential source."

Shahram Akbarzadeh, Professor of Middle East & Central Asian Politics, Deakin University, Australia

"A rich and provocative contribution to the study of European-Middle Eastern relations, showing how current dynamics are informed by continuities from the past as well as historical ruptures. More than a guide, it challenges readers (scholars and policy practitioners alike) to approach the subject introspectively in order to fully understand how situations have arisen. Together the introduction and design make this a remarkably successful handbook in which coherence prevails amid a diversity of perspectives."

Richard Gillespie, Emeritus Professor of Politics, University of Liverpool
