Sample text

The critical element here is the emergence of an EU level collective interest on foreign policy issues. If one applies the rational intergovernmentalist logic to 2nd pillar integration, then it could be argued that the CFSP developed as a result of convergence of interests among the EU members to exert a credible presence in international politics. Even though the Maastricht Treaty represented the quantum leap in EU foreign policy cooperation, this does not mean that there were no initial attempts to build the institutional set-up for foreign policy and security integration.

That is probably partly why there was a divergence between the USA and the Europeans over the war against terrorism, that does not mean that all the European states think in a similar fashion, for example, the UK is close to the USA in both the definition of security risks terrorism poses and the responses to be taken, whereas France and Germany favour diplomatic measures rather than direct use of force. A real turning point for American and European relations came with the Iraqi intervention in 2003.

As a result of the civilian nature of the foreign policy tools, the Commission comes to play an important role under the CFSP. This is also how economic policy making and foreign policy would be tied in the CFSP context. The trade, aid packages and/or association agreement negotiated by the Commission with 3rd parties act as advancing the EU’s foreign policy objectives as well. The highest impact in that respect is exerted by the membership incentive and EU conditionality. The EU’s civilian power becomes most explicit on states in the European continent which aspire for full membership, and the carrot of material benefits through membership enables the Union to influence such countries’ political and economic policies as well as their foreign policy choices.
