Strengthened by the conflict? : EU defence policy cooperation after the Iraqi crisis (Engelska)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine whether the EU’s defence policy cooperation has strengthened since the Iraqi war to avoid the ESDP being paralyzed in the future by differing preferences of its member states. This leads to my main research question: Has the EU’s defence policy cooperation strengthened since the Iraqi war?

Drawn upon theories of Michael H. Smith and Michael E. Smith I’ve constructed a theoretical framework that puts institutionalization as the independent variable and cooperation as the dependent variable. By using M.H. Smith’s “layers on cooperation” I’ve been able to examine the objectives, institutional capacity and possibilities to cooperate. Michael E. Smith’s “stages of institutionalization” have been used to examine possible changes of institutionalized cooperation.

From this theoretical framework, I’ve formulated two specific research questions that will help me answer my main question. These are, 1) has the EU’s defence policy cooperation been institutionalized since the Iraqi war?, and 2) has the unity between the objectives, the institutional capacity, and the possibilities to cooperate improved since the Iraqi war?

Furthermore, I’ve used this theoretical framework to compare the cooperation on two points in time; 1) at the outbreak of the Iraqi war in March 2003, and 2) the present time, spring 2006. Based on the principles and general guidelines for the cooperation, I’ve examined the military aspects of ESDP at these points in time.

The answers to my specific research questions are that the cooperation has institutionalized since the Iraqi war. However the unity among the layers has deteriorated since only the layer of ideas has institutionalized. This means that the defence policy cooperation hasn’t strengthened since the Iraqi war.
