This paper takes as object of study a defining period of Norway's relations to the EU, from 1959, when EFTA was established, to 1962, when Britain's first application for EC membership was vetoed by de Gaulle.

The option of EC membership, meanwhile, did not acquire any similar policy consensus.

Eli Skogerbø & Tanja Storsul

This paper discusses the pertinence of social constructivism to the study of integration. One observation is that while constructivism offers key insights, its assumptions and methodology should not be taken as fully tailored to meet integration students' needs.
