The purpose of the book is to uncover, by pluralistic means, the rules of the game that structure the field of the EU’s security making. That way, rather than impose a rigid theoretical model, the editors structure the inquiry around three concepts: security, politics, and policy.
This book was published as a special issue of Perspectives on European Politics and Society.
