Chapter Summary

The current fifteen member states of the European Union (EU) strive for coordination, harmonization and eventual unification of their foreign and security policies by their Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). The CFSP is based on the oftentimes very diverse pre-conditions, traditions, and interests of the foreign and security policies of the individual EU member states. In particular, the CFSP materializes in the UN on three different levels: in the General Assembly in New York, in the specialized agencies for economic, humanitarian, scientific, and technical affairs, above all in Geneva, Nairobi, Paris, and Rome, and in the UN Security Council in New York (Security Council). Since the end of the Cold War, there have been increasing signs that the EU Europeans are willing to play a more independent, common European role in world politics by means of the CFSP.
