Manners, Ian. (2001) "Normative power Europe: the international role of the EU". In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
Hedley Bull's searing 1982 critique of the European Community's 'civilian power' in international affairs serves as the point of departure for my discussion of the European Union's 'normative power' in contemporary international and world society. The idea of using Bull's examination of civilian power Europe as an entry point to a discussion on the value of using English School terms to study the EU may strike many as problematic. I will attempt to use this paper to argue that the methodological pluralism of the English School provokes us into thinking beyond traditional conceptions of the EU's international role and towards the idea of the EU's international role being primarily normative, not civilian or military.
