Project Title: EU as a United Actor – the need for a common European security policy Abstract: This paper focuses on which elements that inspired the creation of the European External Action Service (EEAS) and whether it is possible for the EU to pursue a common security policy. In the first part, the necessity for the creation of EEAS is explained, by reviewing historical events, and key concepts in European integration theories. The second part deals with how the EU has responded to the Arab uprisings in 2011, in relation to their own objectives, as described in the Lisbon Treaty and the EU’s projected goal of a common security policy. This is combined with a discussion on actors, to further debate if the EU has lived up to their goals. The paper concludes that there are a number of difficulties in terms of national interests preventing EEAS' success, although there appears to be signs that the EU slowly is trying to act together with regards to the common security policy.
