    The initial development of the European Security and Defense Policy (ESDP) of the European Union (EU) has been variously described as "dramatic", "momentous" and "a remarkable expression of collective political will". Two years on from the Cologne European Council, which committed the EU member states to the development of ESDP, the rhetoric has subsided. It has been replaced by much more sober assessments relating to questions of implementation-what French Premier Lionel Jospin has referred to as the "practical phase" of European defense. In this regard, the issues are by now well-known: defining the objectives of European security and defense, matching capabilities with intentions, laying down an effective institutional structure, clarifying the relationship with NATO (and by extension, the U.S.), and associating "third parties" outside the EU's formal membership. This paper focuses on the last, and probably the least noted, of these issues and deals with one particular dimension of the inclusion issue-that of Russia.
