Example text

The first term of the Clinton era was, in a way, a return to the closeness of the 1950s and 1960s, but without the threat that had inspired that closeness. The second term was characterised by a slow-burning discord over burden and power-sharing in which both the US and the Europeans wished to maintain the one and increase the other. American resentment over perceived European freeloading on US military spending is an old phenomenon. In 1984 Senator Nunn presented an amendment to Congress seeking to tie the size of US forces in Europe proportionally to the European’s defence effort.

The Franco-German understanding was fortified through the European integration project. Britain was allowed to join the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1972, but enlargement failed to foster the same degree of closeness between Paris and London that it had done between Paris and Bonn. The two countries came to form two camps which, as we shall see at the end of the chapter, have endured to this day. The intraEuropean bargain was also eased by American engagement, preventing any one European power from seeking primacy in Europe.

Unlike, for example, NATO, the EU has proved itself to be unwilling to compromise on these values when reviewing membership applications. Values are the glue that holds the EU together and are an important factor in why EU membership is so attractive to emerging democracies. The values underpinning the EU are evident in its treaties. Policy-making in the EU is a dynamic process through which interests and objectives emerge as a result of interaction at the domestic, national and European level.
