Welcome to Mercury!

MERCURY was a consortium of academic partners formed to examine critically the European Union's contribution to multilateralism. From 2009 to 2012, it explored multilateralism as a concept, an aspiration, and a form of international order. On this website, you will find more detailed descriptions of the project partners and the project structure as well as project results, namely 22 MERCURY E-papers and 5 Policy Briefs (see Publications), an online glossary on multilateralism (see Glossary) and the database DATEX on EU legal instruments in external policy fields (see DATEX database).
