The EU likes to be seen as a normative actor,
engaged in diffusing the norms and values enshrined in the
Lisbon Treaty. This book focuses on gender equality as one
of these values. It shows that the EU, in implementing the
mandate to promote gender equality abroad, is acting under
distinctly separate sets of logic in the various policy
fields and vis-à-vis different stakeholders. The same
normative commitment to gender equality, when filtered
through the particular logic of the various policy fields,
leads to different types of external action with rather
different outcomes.
