This text argues that the process of West European integration has been encouraged and facilitated by the Cold War, in which the threat posed by the Soviet Union temporarily inhibited internal conflicts, and in which American hegemony provided the relatively stable and secure economic, political and military framework in which the major West European countries were able to co-operate and set major steps towards the ultimate ideal of a European Union. --

At the European Union's Helsinki summit of December 1999, European leaders took a decisive step toward the development of a new Common European Security and Defense Policy aimed at giving the EU a stronger role in international affairs backed by a credible military force. This Marshall Center Paper analyzes the processes leading to Helsinki by examining why and how this new European consensus on defense issues came about. It takes the pulse of the EU's emerging defense policy and touches upon the main controversies and challenges that still lie ahead

18 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social power, defined as "the ability to set standards, create norms and values that are deemed legitimate and desirable, without resorting to coercion or payment", is a central part of contemporary international politics. This text introduces and defines the concept of social power and considers how it works in international politics. It demonstrates how social power is a complex phenomenon that manifests itself in a wide variety of ways and circumstances, particularly in culture, institutions, law, and the media. Providing a global perspective on the role of social power from the EU, the US, the Middle East, and China, this book: Focuses on the key aspects of social power: centrality, complexity, and comprehensiveness. Examines the complex relationship between soft and hard power, the role of the media, and new communications technologies. Explores the interplay between state and non-state actors in framing the public discourse, setting the agenda, molding identities, and ultimately determining the outcome of policy processes. Features a broad range of international case studies and addresses issues including: culture and pop culture, media, public diplomacy, and branding. With particular focus on the social power of non-state actors, such as non-governmental organizations, the media, and consumers, Social Power in International Politicsoffers a thought-provoking new perspective on how power is exercised in the complex reality of the contemporary world.

Among the range of problems which have arisen following the breakup of the Soviet Union, those of Ukraine and its relations with Russia, particularly in the nuclear field, are among the most difficult.

This Chaillot Paper focuses on the main proliferation challenges facing Europe as a whole, and examines the policies which have been formulated by the main West European countries and their security organizations.

A South China Sea conflict: implications for European security : a scenario study by Peter van Ham( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How would a major security crisis in East Asia affect the security position of the European Union (EU)? This report offers a scenario-based case study, and then proceeds to discuss its implications for European security, with particular focus on the strategic interplay between the EU and the other key powers involved: China; the United States; and Russia. First, the study provides a general overview of the key actors and economic/geopolitical stakes at play in the scenario's theatre: the South China Sea, which has been at the centre of territorial and maritime disputes for decades, if not centuries. Subsequently, the 'scenario proper' is outlined. China's establishment of a sweeping Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) triggers escalating tensions, which culminate in the accidental downing of a Chinese aircraft by a Philippine warship. The ensuing strong reaction by Beijing leads to an initial standoff with the 'traditional' regional security guarantor, the United States. However, China is the first to make a move to break the stalemate, and Washington's reaction, far from being assertive and signalling an at least temporary willingness to disengage, has the potential to generate a variety of unintended geopolitical dynamics with major global ramifications. The second part of this Clingendael Report seeks to analyse the non-linear consequences of the crisis described in the scenario on the security dynamics of the European chessboard. The crux lies in how the key actors will respond to the rather unforeseen 'tame' US reaction to China's aggressive poker game in the South China Sea. Washington's de-escalatory moves in South-East Asia rekindle European doubts regarding the credibility of the American commitment to upholding NATO's Article 5. While it is unlikely that the authoritarian regimes in Moscow and Beijing will take advantage of Washington's 'moderation' to launch an all-out assault on the geopolitical status quo (whether in Eastern Europe, the Arctic, or in East Asia), the crisis will nevertheless be likely to act as a wake-up call for most regional powers to take on more responsibility for their own security. With specific regard to the EU and its member states, critical developments in the South China Sea are therefore likely to bolster the already existing case for a more self-standing EU-based continental defence
Chemical weapons challenges ahead: the past and future of the OPCW : with a case study on Syria by Peter van Ham( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report the Clingendael Institute examines the track record of the organisation in the light of the questions raised about the OPCW's future. With this report, the authors aim to offer some insights into the challenges and options for the future, as well as to identify potential steps that policy makers could take to prepare the OPCW for the future. The report will build on analyses and recommendations that have been published by the OPCW, in particular the Technical Secretariat of the OPCW. It will provide further input for this debate and the authors hope to stimulate policy discussions with some new and challenging insights. The report is organized as follows: Chapter 1 offers a retrospective look at the challenges and accomplishments of the OPCW during the past 20 years. Chapter 2 presents a detailed case study on the OPCW's most high-profile and politically pertinent challenge: verifying the chemical disarmament process in war-torn Syria, where chemical weapons have actually been used and where the OPCW has to manoeuvre in a complicated geopolitical environment. What lessons can be learned from these experiences and how could the OPCW respond to current challenges? This case study can also be read as a separate study, not necessarily with a direct connection to the remainder of the study. Chapter 3 focuses on the future: what challenges will the OPCW most likely face in the coming years, and what are the policy options for the OPCW (and its States Parties) to ensure that the organization will remain relevant and effective for many decades to come?
