Schimmang, Beatrice. (2009) Die Erfolgschancen einer europaischen auswartigen Diplomatie als Beitrag zu einer koharenteren Aussen-und Sicherheitspolitik der EU. = The chances of success for a European External Action Service as a contribution to a more coherent European Foreign and Security Policy. TAIF Nr. 3/2009. [Working Paper]
Since its constitution as the second pillar of the European Union in 1992, the European Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) has become a much discussed topic in the scientific landscape. Yet, until today member states face major problems in providing a cohesive framework combining the Community pillar and the intergovernmental second pillar. The Lisbon Treaty reflects the next opportunity to overcome the dualism in the European Foreign Policy. The two different regimes should be combined through a European Union High Representative in order to raise the EU’s profile in the international arena. He or she will be supported by a European External Action Service (EEAS). The core of this paper consists of an historical-institutionalist analysis of this Service. It is based on the assumption that the development of the EEAS is influenced by path-dependent processes. After pointing out the development of the European Foreign Policy and the scientific perspectives about the future EEAS, an analysis is provided based on historical-institutionalist assumptions by Paul Pierson. The aim is to evaluate the scientific literature and to assess future potentials for developing this Service.
