Studies of relations between the U.S. and the EU tend to take U.S. foreign policy as a given, and proceed to examine those areas in which the U.S. and EU have found common ground or are in disagreement. However, the inputs to these U.S. foreign policy outcomes have received relatively little attention. This paper focuses on one foreign policy input in the U.S. side of the US.-EU relations: the role of state and local governments in shaping U.S. foreign policies in areas that are of concern to the EU ... Which aspects of US-EU relations have an important local government dimension? How do local governments try to influence US.-EU relations? In which policy areas do key local govern¬ments share views that are more closely aligned with an EU position than with U.S. foreign policy? The results will provide insight into two broad international relations themes: the extent to which non-state actors (like subnational governments and international organizations) are eroding the sovereignty of nation-states, and ... add[ing] the U.S.-EU case to the growing body of literature on the influence of state and local governments in U.S. foreign affairs.
