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 serious account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and defense associations within the post-Coldwar period. this variation is explored in 3 levels. the 1st level covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the protection of a `western protection group' inherited from the chilly struggle, via a strategy of institutional reconstruction principally 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 protection. The 3rd degree explores the rising questions of legitimacy surrounding the hot initiatives of those associations as they turn into embroiled within the battle within the former Yugoslavia. The precedents of valid intervention in upholding democracy, loose markets and human rights within the post-coldwar period are tested from the views of foreign legislation and Gramscian derived options of legitimacy, targeting the reputation of army strength by means of civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

47 Since it discards regime analysis altogether, this approach does not offer any insight to utilising regime analysis in explaining the dynamics of cooperation. However, it does offer a useful critique of regime theory as in Susan Strange’s contribution to Krasner’s volume,48 which makes the reader aware of the shortcomings of regime analysis. The second approach is what Krasner calls the modified structural view. These writers, such as Robert Keohane and Arthur Stein, maintain the structuralist–realist premise of a system of sovereign states maximising their interests and power.

In this sense it is worth investigating why nation states would cooperate in the absence of binding rules and a regulatory international body. NEO-FUNCTIONALISM Neo-functionalism developed as an alternative to functionalism. The monocausal explanation of social activity which functionalism gives was not seen as sufficient by the neo-functionalists, since functionalism did not seek to explain the dynamics behind integration. 30 Mitrany called the neo-functionalist thesis, federalist–functionalist, since it incorporates elements of both.

Therefore an institutionalised regime has more chance of survival than an uninstitutionalised regime. This is another example of the broad application of regime theory. Regimes are not necessarily institutions, they can be loose, uninstitutionalised frameworks. On the other hand institutions can serve regimes, just like the WEU, EC and NATO serve the European security regime. The concept of a security regime has also been applied to the area of US–Soviet relations. 68 On the other hand, in a study undertaken by Alexander George, Philip Farley and Alexander Dallin on US–Soviet security cooperation, the authors reach the conclusion that while there is no comprehensive US–Soviet security regime, nevertheless the relationship seems to have created quasi or partial regimes in issue areas within the overall relationship.
