L'européanisation de la politique étrangère de la Slovénie

Authors: Routhier, François
Abstract: The integration of a country into the European Union brings changes to the country’s national policies. This phenomenon is known as Europeanisation. This thesis looks into the Europeanisation of Slovenia’s foreign policy and tries to establish its cause. In order to do that, an analysis of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) regime first establishes that European integration increased between 1992 and 2006. The same is true of Slovenia’s integration to the CFSP regime. The results of four case studies on Slovenia’s foreign policy are then analysed through two different prisms: the rationalist theory and the constructivist theory. This empirico-deductive research shows that the rationalist theory explains the observed Europeanisation better than the constructivist theory. It therefore concludes that costs/benefits calculations led to the Europeanisation of Slovenia’s foreign policy.
