Investigates why the EPC process (and its successor, the Common Foreign and Security Policy) have appeared to be ‘less than supranational, but more than intergovernmental’. First, it outlines a theoretical argument challenging the view that governments have dominated the EPC/CFSP decision‐making process. It then shows how EPC began to evolve (against the wishes of some governments) beyond its intergovernmental origins into a transgovernmental network, producing rules that became associated with European Community rules and procedures, and encouraged the involvement of EC actors. It then describes the process by which EPC was replaced by CFSP, inaugurating a new and supranational institutional basis for CFSP.
