Conclusion

  • Nicholas Wright
Chapter
Part of the New Perspectives in German Political Studies book series (NPG)

Abstract

This concluding chapter draws together the key themes, ideas and findings set out in the book. In particular it shows that by examining national policy coordination processes, the degree of convergence in structures and policies between the two states, and their success in policy ‘uploading’ to CFSP, we can develop a far better understanding of the complexity of their domestic foreign policy-making regimes and the importance of national level institutions in determining the preferences and interests that are then pursued in CFSP. This highlights the core message of the book: however complex and cooperative their multilateral interactions, the member states remain as central as ever to EU foreign and security policy-making.
