La Politique de sécurité et de défense commune de l’UE: les effets de socialisation

Dans cet article, le développement de la politique de sécurité et de défense commune de l'UE (PSDC) est conçu comme le processus de socialisation diplomatique, d'apprentissage et de diffusion de normes et d'idées. Vu que la PSDC reste dans l'essentiel de nature intergouvernementale et relativement peu institutionnalisée, le processus de socialisation joue un rôle prépondérant suite à l'interaction croissante entre les acteurs dans le cadre de la PSDC. Les Etats membres ont appris, à travers l'interaction, de se comporter en commun et d'adopter les normes dans le cadre de la PCSD et cela conduit au changement de leurs intérêts et donc de leurs identités. A travers l'interaction, des règles formelles et des pratiques informelles ont été développées qui permettent le fonctionnement de la PSDC. L'article sera divisé en deux parties. Dans la première partie, l'auteur présente les traits essentiels du constructivisme social en tant qu' approche prometteuse dans l'analyse du fonctionnement de la PSDC et s'efforce de clarifier le concept de socialisation. Dans la deuxième partie, la PSDC est envisagée à travers le processus de socialisation. L'auteur conclut qu'à travers l'interaction, l'habituation de coopération conduit à l'émergence de normes et d'idées communes, qui produisent progressivement une "pensée européanisée" et des actions communes dans le cadre de la politique de sécurité et de défense.

The Scope and Objective of Treaty-Based Flexibility Arrangements in The Area of European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP)

From the very beginning of its existence, the European Community has been facing the problem of harmonizing the process of integration and heterogeneity. The challenge has been to organize a growing diversity within the Union without jeopardizing the dynamics of integration. In the area of foreign, security and defence policy, this heterogeneity is particularly marked, whereas unanimity is the principal way of decision-making. It was therefore necessary to provide for such forms of flexibility which would not block the development of this policy. The development of the EU security and defence policy is a result of differentiation which has been the core of the framing of this policy from the very beginning. Therefore, within this policy, differentiation occupies a position which it does not have in any other Union policies. The purpose of this paper is to analyse Treaty provisions on flexible cooperation within the EU foreign, security and defense policy. Their aim is to enable states to implement cooperation within the institutional framework of the EU, and conversely, to enable those states which refuse participation not to become involved. These innovations imply certain risks, since flexibility creates additional institutional complexity and may create a rift between states which choose to advance and those not willing to do so.
