    This study aims to analyze how the secondment of public servants has affected the development of a Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). I will look at how these officials influence, and are influenced by, EU decision-making processes; how their baggage of knowledge and assumptions change with their secondment; and how they, in turn, transform decision-making processes in their respective institutions. It is hypothesized that these networks, through processes of mutual learning and socialization, contribute to the Europeanization of national foreign policies, on the one hand, and to the development of common assumptions, approaches and values in foreign policy, on the other. Basing myself on academic discussions of socialization in international institutions and in the Union in particular, I shall look at how these patterns of socialization translate into the development of a common set of assumptions and approaches. A series of interviews will give flesh and depth to the theoretical findings.
