Sample text

The need for unanimity meant that small member states had the same procedural rights as the large in the shaping of EPC positions. This introduced a tension to the system: if equality between all member states was maintained, the consensus decision in EPC would often be one that left larger members in a position where they were more likely to achieve their preferences by breaking ranks; if, in contrast, EPC adapted to the reality that it might need its larger member states more than vice versa, the smaller members were liable to complain of a directoire.

Smith, 1998, pp. 314–15) In 1981, the London report added a ‘crisis procedure’ to EPC. If at least three member states feel there is a crisis deserving the urgent attention of EPC, a meeting of either the Political Committee or of ministers can be convened within 48 hours. A like procedure can be invoked in third countries at the level of heads of mission. The London report also aimed to improve arrangements for the anticipation of crises and the preparation of contingency actions: ‘working groups are encouraged to analyse areas of potential crisis and to provide a range of possible reactions by the Ten’ (EC Bulletin, 1981, no.

225). On the second point about consensus diplomacy, EPC often seemed better suited to ‘slow fuse’ problems that could be analysed at a leisurely place than to the management of sudden crises. It is, however, the third criticism that is probably the most serious indictment of EPC. Convergence, where it was achieved, was often unstable. As seen, there was never any obligation to follow EPC agreements, still less any institutional enforcement mechanism. In many cases, ease of exit may even have been a precondition for agreeing the policy in the first place.
