About the Authors
  • Emergence of a common security and foreign policy has been one of the most contentious issues accompanying the integration of the European Union. With extensive empirical evidence drawn from interviews, case studies, official documents and secondary sources, Michael Smith examines the specific ways foreign policy cooperation has been institutionalized in the EU. This analysis will appeal to scholars and researchers in international relations, law, foreign policy and European studies.

    • Unique analytical framework developed to explain the special relationship between institutional development and cooperative outcomes
    • Covers the entire history of EU foreign policy cooperation from its origins in the late 1960s
    • Synthesizes a large amount of empirical evidence drawn from a variety of sources, including numerous elite interviews

    "Smith's important work deserves to be included in the canon of European foreign policy theoretical texts. It nicely rounds out our theoretical knowledge of the role of institutions in European foreign policy cooperation and is strongly recommended to those, like Smith, who are intrigued by the unprecendented degree of foreign policy cooperation among the 25 members of the European Union." APSA Perspectives on Politics
