Example text

A main motivation for the book is the aim to cast light on the question of whether and in what ways the national foreign policies of small member states have been transformed by the EU. Here this is being approached through studying the relationship between EU and national foreign policy in different policy areas. This premise also affects the definition of foreign policy used in this book. Wæver (1994) has analysed the possible conceptual challenges to FPA and its focus on states from a postmodern/post-structuralist perspective.

However, the adaptation framework does not deal with the possible broader implications of the European dimension being the ‘most important aspect of Danish foreign policy’ or, indeed, what this means. The framework does not consider that the perceived importance of the EU as central for Danish (foreign) policy may already have had more profound consequences for Theoretical Background and Analytical Framework 29 the shaping of Danish foreign policy or its general profile. The meaning dimension is exogenous just like the definition of national interests.

Adaptation theory does not do that, due to its rationalist foundation which influences the questions that are asked. Tonra’s work provides very interesting findings with regard to an intersubjective structure of meaning among small states relating to EU decision-making Theoretical Background and Analytical Framework 39 and the role of the EU in small state foreign policy. It does not go as far as an analysis of common concepts in substantial foreign policy areas, but it provides an important background for the question of the role of the EU for small state foreign policy from a constructivist perspective, including analyses of the impact of EU concepts in areas of national foreign policy.
