Florin Coman-Kund, Assistant Professor in European Union Law at the Erasmus School of Law (ESL) of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, has recently published a first monograph on the topic of EU agencies’ international cooperation. The publication offers an all-embracing investigation into the so far unchartered role of EU agencies in EU external relations and on the international plane. It addresses legally problematic issues regarding the scope, design and limits of EU agencies’ international cooperation, the status of these bodies as global actors as well as the legal nature of their international cooperation instruments. In doing so, the study maps out EU agencies’ international cooperation legal framework and practice, advances an innovative legal-analytical blueprint for assessing EU agencies as global actors, and it examines through three carefully selected case studies the complexities of EU agencies’ daily international cooperation.
