the Eurozone since the start of the financial crisis from 2009 onwards. Third, the migration crisis, internal insecurity and self-doubt within the EU have resulted in an internal and external questioning of the value and validity of the EU project itself. In turn, this has led to the emergence of other perceptions of Europe and European futures rather than the inevitability of EU-isation. Identification with the EU as ‘Europe’ and as the only source of regional economic, social or strategic security for neighbour states, is challenged and historic European

“traditional” princes’ (1998: 103). 216 India in a globalized world Globalization involves the interconnectedness of societies.

This is mostly evident in the case of the EU–China strategic partnership acting as the broad institutional framework for a dialogue on security and defence policy, a dialogue on development, a political dialogue on nonproliferation and disarmament, a human rights dialogue, a high-level dialogue on migration and mobility, the sustainable development task force, a dialogue on energy and the climate change partnership (ESPO, undated). All these sectoral dialogues associate with freedom from fear and freedom from want. The institutional framework may show

The new Framework Agreement aims to facilitate and promote co-operation across multiple sectors, including trade, research and innovation, counter-terrorism, education and culture, and migration (European Commission
