This paper investigates the EU's 2008 decision to launch a maritime, military operation - NAVFOR Somalia/Operation Atalanta - off the Somali coast, as opposed to extending the NATO operation that was already in the area. Riddervold suggests a two phase analysis, drawing on communicative action-, and neo-realist theory.
This paper attempts to conceptualize the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy by moving beyond traditional (realist or rational choice) perspectives. The alternative conceptions discussed are those of the EU as an (i) identity-based or (ii) rights-based entity, each with separate implications for the pursuit of a common European policy.
