Abstract "Deconstructing "Ideal Power Europe": The EU and Arab Change criticizes the dominant discourse on European foreign policy, which represents the EU as a force for good in world politics. Using a poststructuralist approach, it deconstructs the EU's representation as "an ideal power" through an analysis of European foreign policy on the Southern Mediterranean before and after the Arab uprisings. In this endeavor, it displaces three major discourses which construct the EU as "ideal": the "postmodern and post-sovereign EU", "the EU as a model/a virtuous example", and, "the EU as a normative power" discourses. The major argument of the book is that the "ideal power Europe" meta-narrative is especially produced and reproduced in the EU's approach towards the Southern Mediterranean, and, it manifests itself through the rhetoric of "responsibility" and "universality" in the aftermath of the Arab uprisings"-- Publisher's description.
