A European Security Architecture after the Cold War: by Gülnur Aybet (auth.)

By Gülnur Aybet (auth.)

A eu protection structure after the chilly battle presents a severe account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and protection associations within the post-Coldwar period. this modification is explored in 3 levels. the 1st degree covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the protection of a `western protection group' inherited from the chilly conflict, via a means of institutional reconstruction mostly conducted on paper. the second one level from 1991 to 1992 sees the incorporation of a `purpose' for those associations as a framework for the implementation of collective safeguard. The 3rd level explores the rising questions of legitimacy surrounding the recent projects of those associations as they develop into embroiled within the warfare within the former Yugoslavia. The precedents of valid intervention in upholding democracy, unfastened markets and human rights within the post-coldwar period are tested from the views of foreign legislation and Gramscian derived suggestions of legitimacy, targeting the reputation of army energy via civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

Sample text

As explained earlier, these are the beliefs of fact and causation upon which a regime is founded and the standards of behaviour defined by rights and obligations. Krasner’s explanation for the factors affecting the legitimacy of regimes is as follows: First, if the rules and decision making procedures are altered, this constitutes a change within the regime itself. But the regime is not threatened by these internal changes. For example, charters or agreements can be modified to accommodate necessary changes, or the institutions which serve a regime can be altered to make them more efficient.

The impact of a revival of federalism based on the incremental approach in the post-Cold War era will be touched upon in the last chapter. FUNCTIONALISM The pattern of theory corresponding to history is very clear in the development of functionalist theories. Just as federalism emerged at the end of the war in the attempt to build a supranational community, functionalism emerged in the period between the two wars, when European nationalism was at its peak. Functionalism developed as an alternative to nationalism, on the premise that Theories of Integration 17 the development of international organisations performing human welfare tasks would erode popular support for nation states and thus diminish the threat to world peace posed by nationalism.

On the different nature of states (that is their difference in size, economic development and so on) Mitrany claims that it would not matter because ‘functional arrangements could take things as they are’. 22 But if conflict is discarded at the door of a functional workshop is there no room for it? 23 It is usually from conflict that eventual consensus would arise. 24 However, it is not clear whether all issues could be dealt with in separate functions. 26 Defence is an issue where national interests are most assertive; therefore it is a political issue which cannot be entirely surrendered to the technicalities it involves, in an international workshop.
