Common Foreign and Security Policy: The Record and Reforms
Pinter, 1997 - Political Science - 210 pages
The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) developed from the Intergovernmental Conference of 1991-2 between leaders of the member states of the European Community. The result of an unsatisfactory compromise, the CFSP has since equally disappointed its supporters and detractors alike.
This book evaluates the initial impact and, where justified, counter-balances the accepted wisdom and dismissive criticism of the CFSP. The contributions by a distinguished team of experts focus on the CFSP 'joint actions', an innovation that differentiates the CFSP from its predecessor, European Political Cooperation, both practically and legally. Six of the eight joint action topics are examined here in detail: South Africa; the former Yugoslavia; the Stability Pact; non-proliferation; dual use goods; and the Middle East peace process. The other chapters are more thematic in approach, and cover funding, conflict prevention and conceptualizing the CFSP.
