    [This study focuses on] the substance of small-state and EU foreign policy, rather than procedures. This is a different angle from central work in the field which has tended to focus (partly, if not totally) on procedures and processes rather than policy substance in relation to the question of the relationship between member states' foreign policy and the EU. A central work in the field by Ben Tonras thus presents some interesting and significant conclusions in this field on the subject of the actors' (Denmark, Ireland and the Netherlands) views on the importance of the CFSP and its procedures. The point of interest in this paper is which parts of national foreign policy that are conducted through the EU and which parts are not. This perspective is, in its nature, complementary to the work on procedures. But it also has the potential of challenging some of the procedural findings (which stress the binding and very comprehensive character of EU procedures in foreign policy), if it is found that substantial puts of the national foreign policy are conducted outside the framework of the EU (or only partly within the EU framework), even if actors generally continue to consider. EU's procedures as binding and comprehensive. In general the paper contributes to the debate on Europeanization of national foreign policies through a study of the Europeanization of foreign policy context
