Abstract [sv]

I uppsatsen analyseras amerikansk verbal utrikes- och säkerhetspolitik kopplad till utvecklingen av EU:s militära krishanteringsförmåga förmedlad av företrädare för Clinton- respektive Bushadministrationerna. Analysen omfattar tidsperioden 2000 till och med första kvartalet 2001.

Syftet med analysen är att dels  fastställa om det finns några substantiella skillnader i de båda administrationernas politik samt att utföra en bedömning av hur huvuddragen i denna politik kan komma att vidareutvecklas och föras under Bushadministrationens fortsatta mandatperiod.Analysen har genomförts med anknytning till Kjell Goldmanns teori om att det sätt på vilket nationella regeringar reagerar med anledning av internationella förhållanden är påverkade av såväl ideologiska som inrikespolitiska hänsynstaganden.

Abstract [en]

The essay analyses American foreign and security policy conducted verbally by predecessors of the Clinton and Bush administrations due to the development of the military crises response capabilities of the European Union. The analysed period stretches from year 2000 until the first quarter of year 2001.

The analysis aims at determining if there are any substantial divergences regarding the policies of the two administrations. The analysis also aims at conducting a brief prediction in what principal features the Bush administration will continue to conduct their policy on European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) until the end of their term of office.

In order to accomplish the analysis it is based on a model of Kjell Goldmann suggesting that international-political action is affected by ideological and domestic-strategic considerations. Above that, in order to increase perspicuity the empirical matters, statements and arguments, are categorized in schools of thought.

The author can establish that nothing indicates substantial divergences in the policies conducted by the two administrations on the matter of development of the military crises response capabilities of the European Union. Slight discrepancies in the political rhetoric’s is all that is indicated.

The future policy of the Bush administration on the issue of ESDP will most likely be a continuation of the already established policy implying an American support as long as it won’t counteract with American national interests.
