A eu safety structure after the chilly battle presents a severe account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and defense associations within the post-Coldwar period. this change is explored in 3 phases. the 1st level covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the renovation of a `western safety group' inherited from the chilly struggle, via a technique of institutional reconstruction mostly conducted on paper. the second one level from 1991 to 1992 sees the incorporation of a `purpose' for those associations as a framework for the implementation of collective safety. The 3rd level explores the rising questions of legitimacy surrounding the hot initiatives of those associations as they turn into embroiled within the warfare within the former Yugoslavia. The precedents of valid intervention in upholding democracy, unfastened markets and human rights within the post-coldwar period are tested from the views of foreign legislation and Gramscian derived suggestions of legitimacy, targeting the reputation of army energy by way of civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

In other words, a regime cannot survive if the basic premises upon which it was founded are no longer valid, or if the standards of behaviour around which expectations converge are violated. 55 Therefore it is possible to make changes within institutions which serve a regime, without necessarily changing the regime, since a regime is more than the sum of functional institutions. 56 But if the principles or norms of a regime are threatened, then it is the regime itself which must change. For example if one takes Western European security cooperation as a regime, it is possible to see adjustments of its rules and decision making Theories of Integration 31 procedures which have taken place, without jeopardising the legitimacy of this regime.

Individual calculations of self interest are weighed against customary international behaviour, Theories of Integration 29 codified within a regime. 50 These writers such as Oran Young, Raymond Hopkins and Donald Puchala maintain that regimes exist in all areas of international relations. This holistic approach is useful for the analysis of this study in so far as it attributes the concept of regime to various phenomena in international relations which were not previously thought of as a regime, such as the balance of power.

On the whole federalism does not give an adequate explanation for the dynamics of integration. All this shows that the introduction of the concept of interests in analysing the dynamics of integration produces a complex problem. Therefore, within this study, interests will be taken into account as variables in the integration process but only in the form of those interests which have been or are apparent, and those which have been acknowledged and defined as interests of a given state or states within a particular time by other secondary or primary sources.
