By Gülnur Aybet (auth.)

A eu protection structure after the chilly battle presents a serious account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and safety associations within the post-Coldwar period. this modification is explored in 3 phases. the 1st level covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the renovation of a `western safeguard neighborhood' inherited from the chilly struggle, via a strategy of institutional reconstruction principally conducted on paper. the second one level from 1991 to 1992 sees the incorporation of a `purpose' for those associations as a framework for the implementation of collective safety. The 3rd level explores the rising questions of legitimacy surrounding the hot initiatives of those associations as they develop into embroiled within the struggle within the former Yugoslavia. The precedents of valid intervention in upholding democracy, loose markets and human rights within the post-coldwar period are tested from the views of foreign legislations and Gramscian derived strategies of legitimacy, concentrating on the reputation of army energy by means of civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

33 The recognition of self interest of nationally constituted groups as the drive behind integration, rather than the wisdom of seeing the common good or a ‘vision’ for a community, makes neo-functionalism a more realistic thesis than functionalism or federalism. Haas also points out that as the key groups to initiate integration will be economic, the starting base will be economic. Haas is therefore aware that his model can only be applicable to industrialised economies where economic interests are mobilised for political action.

Diffuse Norms and Principles as Creators of Regimes According to Krasner, the very norms and principles of a regime can be the basic cause for its creation. These are primary or diffuse principles and norms that condition or engender other principles and norms in an area of issue. As an example, Krasner gives the balance of power in 19th-century Europe, which was the ‘diffuse’ norm which influenced the regime of colonialism. 57 The whole idea of diffuse principles and norms is very important in regime development.

This is why neo-functionalists are sceptical about purely technical functional relations ever developing into a community without the need for central authority, as envisaged by functionalism. 32 In neo-functionalism, it is the key groups in each state and their acceptance of integration which is the starting point. In this sense, integration is adopted as a goal, and therefore unlike functionalism, the process of integration is a conscious one. 33 The recognition of self interest of nationally constituted groups as the drive behind integration, rather than the wisdom of seeing the common good or a ‘vision’ for a community, makes neo-functionalism a more realistic thesis than functionalism or federalism.
