Penksa, Susan E. and Mason, Warren L. (2003) "EU Security Cooperation and the Transatlantic Relationship". In: UNSPECIFIED, Nashville, TN. (Unpublished)
This paper takes a somewhat different view about where European security cooperation and the transatlantic relationship are going. We observe that, in responding to widely recognized changes in the security environment, the EU and its member states have been following the well trodden route of building functional interdependence and institutional capabilities in order to create the conditions from which value agreement and an increasingly focused "political will" can emerge in the foreign and security policy domain. Although the EU's emergence as a security actor is primarily directed towards European regional security, the paper argues that the changing structural capacity and political will are producing a paradigm shift in Europe that challenges the traditional transatlantic relationship.
