By Gülnur Aybet (auth.)

A eu protection structure after the chilly conflict offers a serious account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and safeguard associations within the post-Coldwar period. this modification is explored in 3 levels. the 1st degree covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the maintenance of a `western safety group' inherited from the chilly struggle, via a means of institutional reconstruction mostly performed on paper. the second one degree 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 hot initiatives of those associations as they turn 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, concentrating on the reputation of army energy by means of civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

In trying to explain this, all the theories seem to resort to generalisations about a hazy concept of self interests, just as early federalist writings equate self interests with the public good and functionalism builds cooperation on the calculation of welfare interests and neo-functionalism bases cooperation on calculations of loss and gain made by elites. Similarly writers like Keohane use rational-choice analysis as the driving force behind the creation of regimes. But as explained earlier in this chapter, the dissection of what exactly constitutes self interest is problematic.

As for the reasons which Jervis gives for the demise of the Concert of Europe regime, these too can provide important lessons for the survival of the European security regime in the 1990s. Jervis explains that the Concert of Europe regime came to an end because: i) ii) There were conflicting interests over suppressing revolutions, where Britain and France advocated domestic liberty, Russia, Austria and Prussia sought to suppress it. Therefore the reformulation of international concepts such as self determination can have an effect on the demise of a regime.

The main dynamic of integration for neo-functionalists is based on elite behaviour. Only if political elites think that supranational organisations are the best way of satisfying their pragmatic interests will integration take off as such. 38 Haas maintains that spill over is not an automatic process and depends on the political will of the actors involved. 39 The driving force seems to be national interests, since apart from this there is no explanation as to why actors would adapt lessons which they have learnt from previous experiences of integration.
