    Abstract

    {From the Introduction]. Since the "Petersberg Tasks" for the "Western European Union" were adopted by the WEU council of foreign ministers in 1992, Europe has embarked on forays into the wide field of "hard security". The Petersberg decisions were a first step towards European participation in international peace support with military means, especially "tasks of combat forces in crisis management, including peace-making", as the decision read. European armed forces have been deployed in crisis contingencies, either as the improvised "Allied Rapid Reaction Force" to break up the Serbian circle of artillery fire on Sarajevo in 1995 or later under Nato command & control in Bosnia, in Macedonia, in Kosovo and since the summer of 2003 in Afghanistan. At the end of 2004 the EU was set to take over from Nato in Bosnia as parent organisation for SFOR.
