WHY IS MODERATE CONSTRUCTIVIST APPROACH NECESSARY TO ANALYSE EUROPEANIZATION OF FOREIGN, SECURITY AND DEFENCE POLICIES?

2016-01-01
Europeanization refers to the impact of the European Union polity and policy-making on the national level. This article argues that a moderate (modernist) constructivist approach is necessary to analyse Europeanization of foreign, security and defence policies of EU member states. This is because this approach attributes constitutive and transformative roles to the social and ideational factors that emerge as a result of interaction in institutions. Furthermore, the intergovernmental and consensual nature of the foreign, security and defence policy-making within the EU do not lead to adaptation to rules, regulations and directives as tangible as the economic aspects of integration.

Why Are Federal Arrangements not a Panacea for Containing Ethnic Nationalism? Lessons from the Post-Soviet Russian Experience
Tanrısever, Oktay Fırat (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2009-12-01)
Federal arrangements have been considered by some thinkers as a panacea for containing ethnic nationalism in the ethnically defined regions. This article challenges this view by arguing that federal institutions may enable ethnic nationalists in the ethnically defined regions to consolidate their power through the guarantees that they receive from the federal centre. Although the post-Soviet Russian leadership under Boris Yeltsin sought to use federalism as a tool for containing ethnic nationalism, Russia's...
