Schmitt and the New World Order: A View from Europe
The paper employs Carl Schmitt’s writings in the area of international law and shows that, if re-interpreted in a new light, they can prove useful for a broader understanding of what type of identity is projected internationally by the EU. In particular, this work indicates how the continuum security-identity has been an important aspect of the process of European integration, as can be seen in the informal and formal developments of the CFSP/ESDP and AFSJ, especially its external dimension. Schmitt's concepts of "nomos" and "large space" may still prove useful to reimagine the role of the EU as a 'transnational security entrepreneur', a fluid space that expands constantly and possesses normative claims. Most of the official image projected by the EU institutions is precisely that of a model of regional integration that should be followed all over the world and the idea of 'threat' coming from outside is central to this representation.
