The ENTER policy brief series serves as an outlet for policy-relevant and timely topics at the core of the international research consortium EU Foreign Policy Facing New Realities (ENTER). We strongly encourage policy briefs sharing the research output of the ENTER Cost Action and independent policy briefs that contribute to the research objectives of ENTER – detailed here – from four different angles, namely EU foreign policy perceptions, communication, contestation and relations in turbulent times.
