Abstract

European integration tends to move forward in times of crisis. In the realm of security, the wars in the Balkans, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the rift over the 2003 invasion of Iraq have pushed further integration of European security and defence. Meanwhile, the current austerity crisis, the United States’ reorientation towards the Asia–Pacific region and the recent changes in the EU’s southern neighbourhood provide new pressures for a more integrated and effective Europe. Although prodded by crises, European security integration should not be seen as ad hoc, but rather as a continuous process of small steps alternating with larger strides. With the European Council of 2013 discussing security and defence policy for the first time in years, one can wonder who ‘holds the compass’ and guides these steps. Security Integration in Europe , by Mai’a K. Davis Cross, provides insight into the roles played by Brussels-based networks of diplomatic and military professionals in shaping European security integration. The book is a study of the less-known world of the EU’s governing bodies on internal and external security. Looking at the processes of the expert groups that influence policy outcomes called ‘epistemic communities’, Cross goes deeply into the day-to-day
