Chapter 24 looked at how the EU’s foreign, security and trade policies have shaped its role as a global actor. This chapter examines those policies more closely by looking at the EU’s relations with different parts of the world. We begin with an assessment of the most important political and economic relationship in the world, between the EU and the US. This has not always been an easy relationship, the differences that lurked under the surface during the Cold War having become more visible since the collapse of the Soviet Union removed the one project that the two most clearly had in common.
