      [From the Introduction]. This paper introduces Intergovernmentalist and Institutionalist theories of EU foreign policymaking, and then evaluates their explanatory power in light of two case studies of EU cooperation on a high salience issue – how to respond to the United States' quest for immunity from the International Criminal Court, first through a United Nations Security Council resolution, and then through bilateral agreements. In both cases, member-state preferences diverged considerably. However, the first case involves cooperation among EU member states outside the institutions and process of the CFSP, while the second case involves cooperation within the CFSP. While this case selection does not represent the universe of EU foreign policy actions, tracing the policy-making process and comparing the policy outcomes in the two cases contributes to theory development by demonstrating the plausibility of both theories under specified conditions (George and McKeown 1985).
