Example text

Also, since the EU has increased in membership since its birth, I use various terms to denote this change depending on the historical period under discussion: the Six (Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands), the Nine (the Six plus Denmark, Ireland, and the United Kingdom), the Ten (the Nine plus Greece), and the Twelve (the Ten plus Portugal and Spain). Note also that I use the term “Germany” to refer to unified West and East Germany; “West Germany” and “East Germany” are used only when the discussion requires a distinction between the two countries.

The key challenge here is to understand the various processes by which an informal, extra-legal, ad hoc, improvised system gradually fostered the achievement of cooperative outcomes and progressively enhanced its own procedures to improve the prospects for those outcomes. As much of this activity took place outside the institutions and procedures of the European Community, an explanation of EU foreign policy may benefit from more general explanations of institutional development rather than other theories, such as functionalism, specifically developed to explain European economic integration.

Thus, like realism, liberal interdependence theories of cooperation are too indeterminate to understand fully the progressive development of EU foreign policy. A secure environment and a belief in common interests (or a common destiny) are most likely necessary but still insufficient conditions for the increasingly extensive foreign policy cooperation found in the EU. Given the limits of these general explanations of cooperation, we must take a closer look at the decision-making process within the EU foreign policy system.
