The book will be prepared in English and published in one of the widely recognised European publishing houses, collecting 10 contributions from the JMCoE team as well as other collaborating scholars. The publication will discuss the issues of European integration examined within the JM CeO EU EX/ACT. The topics of successive chapters will be focused on the dynamics of the European Union’s diplomatic relations and strategic partnerships with non-EU countries. This publication will have a strong impact on university teachers and students.
