    [From the introduction]. This paper explores the links between the reform of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), and the process of transformation of the European Union. Its purpose is to assess the impact of a possible future reform on the development of the Common Foreign and Security Policy. The reform of the UN has reached a crucial phase during the Millennium Summit of September 2005, but a decision on the problem of the UNSC has been postponed indefinitely. Negotiations continue without result, with the usual opposition between states wanting an expansion in new permanent members and states wanting only non-permanent new seats. Yet, the Council needs to be reformed urgently as it is losing both its legitimacy and effectiveness as the institution having primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. As the German ambassador to the UN put it, in the context of the overall effort to restructure the UN in the new post-Cold War order, the unreformed UNSC “sticks out like a sore thumb.”
