Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with European Union (EU) internal angle. The author identifies and analyses different EU subgroups with a view to their voting behaviour with European Community (EC)/EU majority, the voting coherence among EU member states (MS) and the subgroup-internal voting coherence on specific issue areas. The voting coherence of the outstanding candidate countries with the EC/EU majority has increased remarkably in the period observed. The chapter describes the issues which are most controversial within the EU, security and decolonisation. The eight Eastern-European countries did not bring in any new difficulties, only Cyprus and Malta caused some problems in the area of Middle East resolutions.
