02.03THE EMPTY SHELL OF BLACK SEA REGIONALISM, DIMITRIOS TRIANTAPHYLLOU

At a time when Russia has become more assertive to the point of challenging the mainstay of the international order, it helped establish since 1945, and Turkey seeks to maintain the status quo in the realm of maritime security, the European Union struggles to define its foreign policy objectives and priorities towards the Eastern Neighborhood, and thereby show its gravitas. Consequently, the Black Sea region finds itself more divided, unsteady, and uncertain about its future as regional actors such as Ukraine and Georgia have cast aside their balancing acts towards a turn to the EU and NATO with negative territorial implications. Thus, the fluidity of the international order raises doubts as to whether regionalism is a realistic prospect in this region or it needs to be replaced by another model of regional governance.

03.03New book: The Dynamics of Black Sea Subregionalism

The Dynamics of Black Sea Subregionalism

Panagiota Manol
 

Reviews: 'This book is by far the most complete and comprehensive presentation to date of the origins, evolution, current state of affairs and actors involved in the process that is shaping the identity of the Black Sea regionalism' from the Foreword by Ambassador Sergiu Celac

'Panagiota Manoli's dedication to, and insight on, issues pertaining to Black Sea regionalism have long been acknowledged by policy-makers and academics alike. As Europe struggles with renewed introspection, this book is a potent reminder that Europe's most daunting challenges in a fast-changing world are still very close to home.' Fabrizio Tassinari, Danish Institute for International Studies; and author of Why Europe Fears its Neighbors

'For too long, scholars of regional dynamics have lacked a study of the Black Sea sub region. We now have such a volume thanks to the excellent scholarship of Panagiota Manoli. Systematic in its empirical coverage, attentive to key theoretical debates and insightful in its conclusions, this impressive book shows why the Black Sea case is important to both wider discussions about regionalism and deeper understanding of the importance of European integration.' Ben Rosamond, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

'Panagiota Manoli has provided us with a detailed analysis of the changing geopolitics of the Black Sea, and offers key pointers about the future of regional cooperation in this strategically vital arena.' Ian O. Lesser, The German Marshall Fund of the United States
