For the past fifty years, diplomacy in Europe has been mainly about Brussels. The vast majority of European diplomats are involved in shaping the EU's common foreign and security policy or the EU itself, that is, they are involved in the EU's both external and internal dimension. This has created a dense web of relations around EU business, which involves officials working on Community (e.g. trade, competition), functional (e.g. UN, disarmament), regional (e.g. Middle East, Africa), and institutional (e.g. European Summits) issues. This interaction shaped the European foreign policy field.
