Inclusion, exclusion and the international politics of the Cold War

Inclusion, exclusion and the international politics of the Cold War

(p.27) 2 Inclusion, exclusion and the international politics of the Cold War
Inclusion, Exclusion and the Governance of European Security

Mark Webber

Manchester University Press

In a book intended to have a contemporary bearing, it may seem idiosyncratic to devote an entire chapter to the Cold War. There are, after all, other more recent episodes which could be said to have shaped international politics and to which connections can be drawn with the book's central concerns of inclusion/exclusion and security. Yet security relations in Europe, both at present and for the foreseeable future, will be shaped more by the legacies of the Cold War than by any other set of circumstances. This chapter examines how Europe's security relations shifted from a politics of exclusion during the Cold War to one with a more inclusive dynamic; an inclusiveness, however, based on the particular circumstances of power and the weight of international institutions at the Cold War's end. After considering the bloc logic of the Cold War, it discusses the development of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the emergence of European integration, the ideology of the Cold War, and the end of the Cold War and the possibilities and limits of inclusion.

Keywords:   Cold War, inclusion, exclusion, international politics, Europe, security relations, bloc logic, ideology, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, European integration
