Mahncke, Dieter (2011) Post-modern Diplomacy: Can EU Foreign Policy Make a Difference in World Politics? EU Diplomacy Paper, 04/2011. [Working Paper]
Although much discussed, there is in fact very little common EU foreign policy. The main reason for this is the reluctance, even the resistance of the member states to grant more authority to the Union in this field. This is unfortunate because the European Union could make a distinctive and positive contribution to the development of peaceful conflict resolution and a rule-based international order. This paper looks at three questions: the reasons for the lack of a common European foreign and security policy, what institutions might make a critical difference in developing more commonness and what the specific characteristics of a ‘post-modern’ EU foreign policy might be.
