  • N° 17, 2005/3 – In Search of European Foreign Policy | Politique européenne
    policy Karen E Smith Beyond the civilian power EU debate This article argues that the European Union is no longer a civilian power instead it finds itself like almost every other international actor on the planet somewhere along a spectrum between two ideal types of civilian and military power But instead of debating what the European Union is civilian power or not we should move beyond this to analyse and debate what the EU does in international relations The article suggests a few lines of enquiry to open that debate Clara Portela Where and why does the EU impose sanctions This article explores whether the EU behaves differently as a sanctioning actor towards its geographic vicinity than to regions further afield It looks at the security relevance of the objectives advanced by sanctions as well as the interplay between objectives and the geographic proximity of the targets to the EU in its autonomous sanctions practice 1987 2003 It identifies a pattern of geographic differentiation Eastern Europe has been targeted for the widest variety of reasons while in the Southern Mediterranean the only focus has been on terrorism In Asia and Sub Saharan Africa most sanctions have been geared towards the promotion of democracy and Human Rights Özlem Terzi Europeanisation of foreign policy and candidate countries a comparative study of greek and turkish cases This paper analyses the processes of Europeanisation of foreign policy in EU member and candidate countries and focuses on their comparison through the Greek and Turkish examples It firstly presents a theoretical framework on the concept of Europeanisation with respect to the foreign policy realm in the EU The paper secondly differentiates between the Europeanisation processes of foreign policy in EU member and candidate countries and argues that these two processes can be compared by analysing Greek

  • N° 9, 2003/1 – Parliamentarianism and European Construction | Politique européenne
    The European Parliament not a very european Parliament This article distinguishes preference aggregation identity formation and the deliberation of norms as three functions performed by parliaments in systems of representative government It argues that analysis of what kind of parliament is the European Parliament EP in comparison to others has hitherto focused excessively on preference aggregation to the exclusion of the other two elements In seeking to correct this it reaches an original assessment of the three way comparison that is often made between the EP US Congress and national parliamentary systems of many EU Member States Olivier Costa Paul Magnette Ideologies and Institutional Change in the European Union Why Have Governments Continued to Strengthen the European Parliament Andreas Maurer The European Parliament the national parliaments and the EU Conventions This paper explores the Convention method along the theoretical concept of deliberative democracy It argues that the Convention method in comparison with IGC s can be seen as an alternative way for steering system change and fundamental reform of the European Union Hence it features participative and inclusive forms of open deliberation it respects and integrates the relative importance of minority positions it offers open fora for parliamentary discourse and helps to include both the European Parliament and national parliaments at an early stage of system building Although the Convention acts in the shadow of the European Council and the upcoming IGC the method itself might become a future model for a more democratic set up of the EU s system Parliamentarianism and European Construction Willy Beauvallet The Institutionalization and Professionalization of Politics in Europe The Case of French Euro parliamentarians Laurent Dutoit Influence within the European Parliament Intergroups Marta Latek The Weight of National Parliamentary Traditions in the Development of Interparliamentary Cooperation The French and British Participation in the

  • N° 5, 2002/1 – The European Commission: The Dynamics of an Institutional Restructuring | Politique européenne
    about administrative fragmentation and rivalry and calls for the merger of the executive functions of the two institutions Against this background the article charts the relations between the Commission and the Council Secretariat across a range of shared tasks It concludes that despite an underlying tension induced by the provisions of the treaty inter institutional relations are largely co operative It provides a tentative explanation based on the expansion of EU institutions the growing interconnectedness of EU policy processes and the strengthening of a supra institutional allegiance amongst EU officials Olivier Costa The Relations between the Commission and the European Parliament as Seen through the Lens of Parliamentarianism Sabine Saurugger A fragmented environment interest groups and the commission s bureaucratic sectorisation While an increasing number of academic publications put forth diverse causal variables which determine interest groups attitudes on the European level few have addressed the question of how bureaucratic sectorisation of the Commission services supports or prevents the emergence of a European form of interest representation This article argues that country specific styles of interest intermediation interact with EU level specific opportunity structures which open or close channels for interest representation In an increasing number of policy areas different Commission services share competences This creates a situation in which bureaucratic competition arises between these services The main question of the paper is therefore how these internal conflicts influence the emergence of a European form of interest intermediation Jacques de Maillard The Commission Wine and Reform Nicolas Jabko Leadership in the European Union Basic Typology and an Illustration of the Case of the Monetary Union Claudio Dadaelli The domestic impact of european union public policy notes on concepts methods and the challenge of empirical research This article builds on the idea presented by Hassenteufel and Surel 2000 in this journal
