(p.1) Introduction
European Political Co-operation

Simon J. Nuttall

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the coverage of the book, which is about the development of the European Political Co-operation (EPC). EPC is the foreign policy arm of the European Community (EC) and the process by which Member States co-ordinate their foreign policies. It was introduced in 1970 as a way to achieve economic and foreign policy identity among Member States and to avoid institutional conflicts that had thwarted earlier attempts to create unified economic and foreign policies. Since its founding, the EPC has grown in significance both for the institutional development of the EC and for its impact on international events.
