Chapter Summary

This study suggests that the phenomenon of Europeanisation has not reached a comparable zenith when looking at the EU internal harmonisation processes abroad. It has been suggested that the EU should establish a so-called common strategy for UN. That does not seem to be a viable solution to achieve more coherence for three reasons. First, the common strategies currently in place do not show tangible results, and as very general declarations of intent there is not much substance behind them either. Second, the range of issue areas discussed is too broad and divergent to deal with all of them under a single strategy. Third, all the areas in which dissent prevails within the EU would have to be excluded from that strategy. Some diplomats stated that they could imagine the points in this paper to be used more widely in other parts of the EU coordination process in New York.
