The forging of a genuine European SecuritY and Defence Poliry (ESDP) will require the
parallel construction of the basic elements of a European securitY culture. For the
foreseeable future, this will be limited to situation assessment, approaches to problemsolving
and poliry-making, and strategic objectives. However, it must involve the gradual
reduction of the divergent patterns which have hitherto marked the approaches of the EU
member states: allies and neutrals, "Atlanticists" and "Europeanists': those favouring
power projection and those prioritising territorial defence, emphases on military as opposed
to civilian instruments, large states and small states, weapons rystems providers and
weapons rystems consumers, nuclear and non-nuclear states. This article assesses the
challenge of narrowing those gaps in the process of creating a workable ESDP.
