The politics of coherence and effectiveness
Author: Ana E. Juncos

This book represents the first ever comprehensive study of the EU’s foreign and security policy in Bosnia since the dissolution of the Yugoslav Federation in 1991. Drawing on historical institutionalism, it explains the EU’s contribution to post-conflict stabilisation and conflict resolution in Bosnia. The book demonstrates that institutions are a key variable in explaining levels of coherence and effectiveness of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and that institutional legacies and unintended consequences have shaped CFSP impact over time. In doing so, it also sheds new light on the role that intergovernmental, bureaucratic and local political contestation have played in the formulation and implementation of a European foreign and security policy. The study concludes that the EU’s involvement in Bosnia has not only had a significant impact on this Balkan country in its path from stabilisation to integration, but has also transformed the EU, its foreign and security policy and shaped the development of the EU’s international identity along the way.

have sought to break this, both through development assistance and measures to ensure better security. Security Sector Reform and Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration are a key part of postconflict stabilisation and reconstruction, and have been a focus of our missions in Guinea-­ Bissau or DR Congo. This is most successful when done in partnership with the international community and local stakeholders.

. Japan also contributes to EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions using its official development assistance. In Niger, the EU CSDP civilian mission has engaged in capacity-building for security by providing advice and training. In December 2014, Japan provided provincial governments with radio communication equipment and radio-equipped vehicles for patrol in remote areas to the amount of 202 million yen through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). In Mali, an EU CSDP mission has been providing capacity-building for safety since July 2014

development of the European Security and Defence Policy (now the Common Security and Defence Policy; CSDP).5 The CSDP offers a framework for cooperation within which the EU can conduct operational missions in third countries. Specifically, the aims of these missions are peace-keeping and strengthening international security. They rely on civil and military assets provided by member states. Though arrangements to manage the EU–NATO partnership are in place, there remain tensions and issues at the political level. In particular, some non-EU NATO member states make it

expect based on their security cooperation, including Japan’s contribution to recent EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions, EU–Japan cooperation on banning anti-personnel mines and limiting the illicit trade in small arms, and the significance of defence cooperation by France and the UK with Japan. Finally, this chapter also assesses the impact that differing assessments of China’s role in international affairs by the EU and Japan might have on current and future security cooperation. Overall, Berkofsky’s expectations are moderate. He does not think

Committee (Comité politique) would become the backbone of the European Union's common security and defence policy (CSDP). The military armament industry would come to back the political ambitions of a European defence. More broadly, the French presidency would do all it can to give Europe the means of its foreign policy. In this area, Chirac mentioned three priorities, the first one being the Balkans. The Union would give to the countries in the Balkan area a clear European perspective in order to encourage them to reform their societies and cooperate on a regional level

in the ESS and in 36 Actors and contexts the EU’s Human Security Doctrine (Council of the European Union, 2004). In effect, this means that the EU can deploy conventional military missions or civilian missions under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), and at the same time rely on various types of humanitarian aid or long-­term development cooperation under the leadership of the European Commission. What is striking about the Union’s activities in large parts of Africa is the high level of intra-­EU tension, which has resulted in bureaucratic

Christou (2014) highlights that mentions of human security in the formal EU discourse have died down with the withdrawal of its key EU proponents, Commissioner Ferrero-Waldner and the HR Solana. This does not mean that the EU refrains from action translatable into human security (Christou, 2014). The post-Lisbon emphasis on the EU

engagement with East Asia and Japan. The Union has sought to enhance its credibility as an international actor by establishing in 1992 a Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and by developing since 1999 the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP), later called the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) under the 2009 Lisbon Treaty. The Union has also sought to make its “external” face more visible through the creation of the position of High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, currently 166 Selected countries and groups held by Federica

The MSDF unit has been providing data to and sharing information with other countries, and has been conducting operations in the field, including EU Naval Force (NAVFOR) Somalia Operation Atalanta, a Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) military mission operational since the end of 2008. 8 In January 2014, for example, cooperation between European and Japanese navies
