The promotion of effective multilateralism is allegedly a key objective of the European Union’s foreign policy. Over the last twenty years, the relationship between the European Union and international institutions has become ‘more sustained and consistent’ (Jørgensen, 2009: 188), as it has become a popular topic for research. Scholars have studied the origin of the multilateral identity and preferences of the EU (Groom, 2007; Jørgensen, 2006a; Manners and Lucarelli, 2007), the role of the EU in promoting regionalism (Grugel, 2007; Söderbaum and Langenhove, 2006), the uneasy intersection between the EU and the state-centric multilateral organizations (Laatikainen and Smith, 2006), and the EU’s potential for shaping norms and rules of the multilateral system (Chaban, Elgström and Holland, 2006; Smith, 2006; Smith, 2010). Others have focused on the role of the EU in specific international regimes and negotiations (Ahnlid, 2005; Kerremans and Gystelinck, 2008; Kissack, 2008; Mortensen, 2009).
