Title
Alternatives to the resident embassy : intra-EU diplomatic networks in the twenty-first century
Author
Abstract
Increasingly integrated in a common political entity, the European Unions member states are exploring new avenues to shape and maintain their mutual relations. This analysis describes three alternatives to the traditional resident embassy by which ministries of foreign affairs within the EU attempt to maintain diplomatic networks. The models discussed are secondments within member states capitals, visiting ambassadors, and co-location and co-operation. In other words, with regard to different modes of representation, member states can consider diving in, stepping back, or pooling and sharing. These developments shed light on the ways in which the diplomatic machineries of the member states are trying to adapt to the demands of a post-Westphalian environment such as that of the EU.
