Two justifications are given for this: first, FPA needs to push beyond the boundaries constructed within US FPA and continue to move towards a more appropriate approach informed by more recent European thinking, and second, the European condition needs to be analysed properly. Theoretical work in this field has had to take account of the triple developments of a post-Cold War Europe, complex interdependence in Europe and the increasingly integrated Europe (Manners and Whitman, 2000b: 4–5). On the basis of these two elements Manners and Whitman suggest a framework for comparative analysis of the foreign policy of EU member states.

Arguably, we see features of a neo-medieval, post-Westphalian system (see for example Ruggie, 1993). The problem is that we do not yet know the nature of the defining units. There does not, of course, need to be only one type of defining unit. But it is necessary for an analysis to have an understanding of the nature of the units. Otherwise we will not have the basis for an analytical framework let alone a new theory (Wæver, 1994: 244). This has implications for the conduct of FPA within the EU.

Moreover, it must be a definition which does not leave out any area dealt with in the international realm. This is to avoid excluding policy areas by definition in the comparison between state and EU foreign policy – potentially damaging if one of the actors examined tends to concentrate their policy efforts in particular fields (it is, for example, often claimed that the EU focuses on softer security and economic aspects of IR). At the same time we also need a definition which retains a certain parsimony with respect to the vast number of international transactions conducted.
