I would like to thank Lisbeth Aggestam, Caroline Soper, Benjie Guy and all the other contributors to this special issue for comments on a previous draft. Some ideas presented here benefited from discussions I had in two different projects. The first were those in the workshops leading to the publication of Hartmut Mayer and Henri Vogt, eds, A responsible Europe? Ethical foundations of EU external Affairs (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2006). Special thanks go to my co-editor, Henri Vogt, and all the individual contributors. The second took place at Oxford University within our RENEW (Rethinking Europe in a Non-European World) research programme. Among others, Kalypso Nicolaïdis, Sonia Lucarelli, Franziska Brantner, Andrew Hurrell and Christian Tuschhoff deserve recognition for their various intellectual inputs into our common project.
