It seems to me that one of two alternative paths could have been taken which would have eased the task: (1) to have taken a general transformation of national foreign policy in a European context for granted and compared national foreign policies within this new framework, or (2) to have made the assumptions more open and used categories which allowed information to be gathered about whether a change has taken place on the basis of what central foreign policy models would consider as change. The study appears to be too ambitious for what is possible in a comparative study of 15 countries: it both wants to examine whether the system has changed and how national foreign policies should be analysed within a new foreign policy system.

The question, in other words, is which national foreign policy areas that are Europeanised, in the sense of dealt with through the EU. Prior to this, however, I will discuss the relevance of the adaptation approach, which is a general approach to FPA. The focus of this theory is not the Europeanisation of foreign policy, but rather the general foreign policy line in a particular policy field. However, recent application of the theory to explain national foreign policy within the EU – including Danish foreign policy – makes the model interesting to evaluate in this context (N.

Petersen, 1998: 38). The adaptation theory assumes a general (international) trend towards balancing in foreign policy due to the growing interdependence among states. As integration is both a response to interdependence and reinforces it, it follows that a balancing policy mode tends to prevail among states that take part in integration. Most EU countries thus follow the balancing strategy most of the time (N. Petersen, 1998: 40–1, 45–6). The balance mode is characterised by a high degree of active participation.
