In particular, this year we assessed the degree of convergence / divergence of the Foreign Policy of the Union with that of its major member states and of the world superpowers and emerging powers (US, Russia, China, India, Brazil).

- The evaluation of the EU Foreign Policy after the introduction of the Lisbon Treaty
