Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the coherence of European Community (EC)/European Union (EU) member states (MS) at the United Nations (UN) with regard to four specific issue areas: Middle East, human rights, international security (including disarmament) and decolonisation. In the issue areas in which coherence is low, it is not likely that the individual policies of the EU MS are going to change quickly. Probably it will only be possible in the areas with already high coherence, namely Middle East and human rights, to come closer to full consensus within the EU group. There is room for improvement in the practicalities of the EU coordination process, but those changes would most likely not lead to a visible rise of voting coherence.

Keywords: decolonisation; European Union; human rights; international security; Middle East; United Nations (UN); voting coherence
