Abstract

[The chapter elaborates on the notion of critical junctures, key concept of the historical institutionalist approach, and examines how it applies in the area of CSDP. Τhe term denotes moments of profound fluidity where important events create the need for institutional responses. Critical junctures are at the origin of important changes, mainly institutional but also capability-driven. In so doing, they also had a long-lasting effect in the way the EU deals with Security and Defence. The events selected did not only influence the direction and the content of ESDP/CSDP, but have presented the EU with new dilemmas, related to its self-perception and its aspirations, in ways that led to its transformation.]
