Check out the frame of reference provided by the pages and chapters of this website assisted by the mind mapping see-the-links tool embedded with different starting points on these pages.
You choose the point of departure - I work on establishing links including by adding references to key topical sources. In so doing I put priority on requests received from registered members. You can register here for free until the end of 2016.

My network is by now very extensive which those of you who are on LinkedIn can see: I have been endorsed for my work on international relations, European Union and foreign policy by more than 100 people, including scores of ambassadors, top EU officials and leading researchers. My network includes more than 45,000 followers on Twitter, and currently some 2000 followers on LinkedIn and more than 500 likes on my handbook page on Facebook. on LinkedIn I'm now seeking contact in particular with trainees and younger officials who need to zoom out in their daily work for professional and personal needs.
The External Action Service as an example has a very limited budget for training and in reality most people do not have time after their university studies to enter more extensive training programs anyway. This is why I have created the notion of e-learning light, training on the go every day just a few minutes. And my contribution will be to help you save a few minutes or hours in so doing by preparing the ground for you.

But there are other entry points as can be seen from the embedded image of the web brain below - click your way to explore! For instance there is a chronological entry point focussing on key events.
Zooming out and seeing the wider links an increasing demanding challenge in security policy.
