András István Türke (ed.)
Core Documents of the common foreign & security policy in Europe (1947-1997)

2008 (English & French Version)

compiled by: Gergely Varga, Guillaume de Rougé, Benoit Duffort, András István Türke

There are several anthologies, textbooks or databases on the Internet that publish, in their own area or of its own logic, several documents on foreign policy and security in Europe. Our book, From Dunkirk to Amsterdam seeks to bring together, in one book, about fifty texts concerning the European space during the period 1947-1997: treaties, plans, common strategies, reports, documents… The most important European documents (of the NATO, the EPC, the WEU, the EU and the CSCE / OSCE), but also some plans unrealized are collected in chronological order to help understand the interactions between the different forms and structures of the common defense in Europe. We hope that reading or rereading of these texts will facilitate understanding of the debates and issues of CFSP / ESDP today.
