Via all measures, the past due 20th century used to be a time of dramatic decline for the Islamic global, the Ummah, relatively its Arab heartland.

But again these are very general and are not based on analyses across issue areas. Concerning the last issue of the constitutive character of EU concepts on Danish foreign policy concepts, none of the three approaches provides answers. Adaptation theory does not do that, due to its rationalist foundation which influences the questions that are asked. Tonra’s work provides very interesting findings with regard to an intersubjective structure of meaning among small states relating to EU decision-making Theoretical Background and Analytical Framework 39 and the role of the EU in small state foreign policy.
In the case of Tonra’s chapter on Denmark (and Ireland), which employs the analytical framework of the book better than most of the other chapters, it would, for example, have been interesting to know whether the EU framework is the most important one for promoting Danish national foreign policy priorities or whether other fora (or bilateral action) are more important. It would also have been interesting to go further than the focus on Denmark’s defence opt-out which does not provide the full picture with regard to Denmark’s attitude towards the EU as a security actor more generally or, indeed, Denmark’s engagement in other EU foreign policy areas (Larsen, 2000a, b).
A more systematic focus on the role of the EU compared with other fora and the extent to which national policy understandings were affected more profoundly by EU stances in different policy areas (as opposed to other multilateral contexts) could have provided insight into the degree to which participation in EU processes affected more profound understandings in substantial areas. In summary, Tonra’s work is important as it presents significant crossnational intersubjective understandings on the role of EU foreign policy for national foreign policy.
