This is the first book to examine in depth the European Union's relationship with the United Nations and to analyze critically the EU's contribution to "effective multilateralism". The contributors show that the EU most often fails to make the UN as effective as it should be in addressing global challenges: the EU is failing to lead within the UN, and yet it is still developing itself as a credible and reliable partner for the UN.
