Edith Drieskens
Edith Drieskens works at the Institute for International and European Policy at Leuven University, Belgium. A central question in her research is to what degree PA theory can explain the representation and coordination behavior of the EUMS in the UNSC, especially for sanctions decisions. From September through December 2007, she assisted the Belgian UNSC Team, interning at the Permanent Representation of Belgium to the UN. From September 2007 through February 2008, she was also in residence at the Center on International Organization at Columbia University. This article is a revised version of a paper which was presented at the Hebrew University (Jerusalem) on 14 July 2008 at the conference on ‘The Lisbon Reform Treaty: Internal and External Implications’, organized by the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Israeli Association for the Study of European Integration and the Czech Association of European Studies. The author would like to thank the participants as well as Tom Delreux, Bart Kerremans and Stephan Keukeleire for their comments on the original text.
