Example text

Clearly, there is a problem relating the imperatives of structuralist approaches to an understanding of European foreign policy, and there is arguably a need to complement the ‘macro’ approach of structuralism with some form or forms of ‘micro’, actor-centred analysis but one which, unlike the EU-as-actor approach, does not make inappropriate assumptions about single actorness. A key question is whether a foreign policy analysis approach can be adapted to fill this role. Before answering that question, however, it is important to discuss two other related theoretical developments that might offer an alternative way forward.

Clearly, without implying that states are not key actors in EFP, if FPA remains tied to ‘state-centric realism’, its value in this context is limited. The argument here – also developed elsewhere (White, 2001: 32–6) – is that FPA is not wedded to traditional state-centric realism. Indeed, the development of FPA as a field of study since the 1950s can be characterised as a continuing adaptive response to the challenges to traditional assumptions emerging from a transforming world politics. With respect to state-centricity, there is no obvious reason why the perspective of and the analytical techniques associated with FPA cannot be transferred from the state to other international actors, or indeed to mixed actor systems.
