Abstract

GUIMARAES, Maria Helena. The limits of France's negotiating power in the EU: the case of the Union for the Mediterranean. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.1, pp. 93-105. ISSN 0034-7329.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-73292012000100006.

Using a case study on France's initiative to create a Union of the Mediterranean, this article tests the hypothesis that the "largest" states of the European Union, though concentrating major sources of negotiating power, significantly jeopardize their negotiating objectives if they overstretch their negotiating power.

Keywords : France; Mediterranean; negotiating power; European Union.
