Sample text

In some issue-areas, such as policy towards South Africa (see Holland 1988; 1995), it is clear that the EU’s Member States have slowly moved from nominally adjusting national policies in the 1970s and 1980s to the point where something which deserves the name ‘common’ has been created in the 1990s. We need to compare the evolution of the EU’s relations with specific regions of the world over time. Ultimately, four or so years is a short time in the context of more than twenty-five years of European foreign policy coordination.

None the less, it can be regarded as an application of systems theory to European foreign policy, in that it sees the CFSP as a sub-system of the general international system, with internal dynamics as well as external influence (Allen, 1989). Moreover the relationship between capabilities and demands is seen as homeostatic to the extent that too great a divergence between the two can have pathological, dysfunctional consequences. Holland (1995:557) has correctly identified this as a form of ‘dissonance’ in Europe’s behaviour, rather than the mere deficiency of power that realists routinely draw attention to.

Given the United States’ established preference for encouraging development through tough conditionality and self-reliance, needy states will continue to look to the EU as their main source of salvation. • From applicants for membership. The demand for entry into the EU shows no sign of drying up. If Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are now almost sure of membership by early in the next century, this can serve only to encourage greater hopes for themselves among the remaining states of central and eastern Europe, notably the Baltic states, Slovenia, Slovakia, Roumania and Bulgaria.
