Lawrence’s Governmentality in EU External Trade and Environment Policy Launched at EISA Prague

October 4, 2018

Professor Jessica Lawrence’s new book Governmentality in EU External Trade and Environment Policy: Between Rights and Market was launched at a roundtable at the European International Studies Association (EISA) 2018 annual conference in Prague on 13 September 2018.

Published in 2018 by Routledge, the book considers what the practice of EU external trade and environment policy, and international resistance to it, tells us about the way the EU perceives the role and limits of transnational government, the means and ends of politics, and the drivers of human and institutional behavior.

The discussion was organized and chaired by Tanja Aalberts of the VU Amsterdam, and featured commentaries from Beste Isleyen from the University of Amsterdam, Maj Grasten from Copenhagen Business School,and Thomas Diez from the University of Tuebingen.
