On the background of the heated debates on the extension of the
Bundeswehr’s spatial and functional remit since the mid-1990s, the EU
member-states‘ readiness to agree on the 2003 European Security Strategy
appears puzzling, as this document sets the normative and ideational
framework for a new kind of robust military engagement on a global scale.
Employing epistemological ideas of the concept of strategic culture on
basis of a constructivist ontology, this book explores the causal
mechanisms sufficient for the origin and adaptation of a pacifist turned
„normal“ German strategic culture.
