Summarizing, Deconstructing, Reconsidering the Results

  • Dirk Peters
Part of the Palgrave Studies in International Relations Series book series (PSIR)


This book started with the proposition that the impact of international structures on national security policies has not received adequate attention in FPA and IR. It set out to construct a framework for analyzing how two of the most basic characteristics of international structure — the international distribution of power and security institutions — affect national security policies. How the framework can be applied to analyzing actual security policies was illustrated through an analysis of one aspect of British and German post-1990 security policies: how did these two states relate to the creation of an autonomous European capability for military crisis management, that is to the emergence of ESDP?
