Dr Lorenzo Fioramonti was the lead researcher on a project aimed at a global analysis of the external perceptions of the European Union (EU). The project entailed a two-phase survey of political elites across the globe, including government and international financial institution (IFI) decision-makers. The core conclusions drawn from the study point to the fact that despite the EU’s self-image as a global actor, the European project remains largely unknown to the citizens of non-European countries, whilst such knowledge that does exist correlates with levels of education. Decision-makers in China and Russia view the EU as a collaborative, though weak partner, and South Africans believe it is an “ineffective” partner. Participation in this project has now culminated in the establishment of a Research Unit on Euro-Africa Studies in the Department of Political Sciences.
A second project in which the Department is involved focuses on the experiences of female South African peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sudan. It is a joint project in which Prof Schoeman and Prof Elrena van der Spuy (UCT) take the lead, and it will be expanded in 2011 to include Dr Louise Olsson of the Folke Bernadotte Academy in Sweden. The publication and dissemination of the initial findings have resulted in cooperation between Prof Schoeman and members of the South African National Defence Force in re-evaluating and restructuring peacekeeping training in order to promote gender mainstreaming more effectively.
