Sample text

Crucially, when we study the CFSP as a system of decision-making, we come to grips with the dialectic between what might be termed the EU’s constitutive and evolutionary processes (Ginsberg and Smith 1995), or the relationship between ‘history-making’ decisions and the mundane, daytoday grind of making policy (see Peterson 1995). Arguably, the CFSP is distinct from the rest of what constitutes the ‘European Union’ in that it is uniquely difficult within pillar II to distinguish between decisions which simply ‘set’ policy, as opposed to ones which ‘make history’ in quasiconstitutional terms.

Almost instinctively, the EU becomes highly conservative and tends to fall back on some type of past policy, even if it is clearly no longer appropriate. In Bosnia, ‘[w]hen action came, it tended to be out of date, suited to an earlier stage of the conflict. Even diplomatic proposals that emerged from a great sense of urgency tended to reflect a situation on the ground that had long passed’ (Woodward 1995: 396). Eventually, whether cause or consequence, larger Member States begin to act on their own or as a group, as in the case of the ‘Contact Group’ on Bosnia.

It is simply not big or powerful enough to act as Europe’s guard-dog by itself (Cornish 1996). In short, while CLOSING THE CAPABILITIES-EXPECTATIONS GAP? 23 many still bemoan the EU’s lack of international clout, few now labour under the same illusions about its capacity or imminent metamorphosis in the way that they did five years ago. This reappraisal was due as much to external factors as to the EU’s own internal differences. 5 In general the international context did not encourage either outsiders or negotiators in the 1996–7 IGC to believe that Europe was on the verge of becoming a major power.
