Executive Summary

Although in recent years both the Iraq and the Iran case have featured prominently in studies of European foreign and security policies, the literature deals generally only with one of the two cases. For example, the EU's lack of consensus in 2002 and 2003 regarding the US-led invasion of Iraq - one of the most prominent international crises in years - has provoked numerous studies on its causes and consequences (Crowe 2003; Grigorescu 2008; Hill 2004; Menon 2004; Ortega 2002; Puetter and Wiener 2007).
