Example text

E ven Islamist parties can be better conceived of as social movements rather than parties in the E uropean or A merican tradition (Wiktorowicz 2004). T he number of genuinely independent civil society actors has been vastly increasing since the early and mid1990s in most MENA countries. A s regards Morocco for instance, H owe (2005, 160) argues that “the explosion of volunteer organizations around the country is one of the most important transformations that has occurred in Moroccan society in recent years”.

T he whole E U construction had to be in concordance with the principles of democratic legitimacy and rule by law. In this context democracy and rule by law are seen essentially as a question of rules, in the tradition of Max Weber: F reely elected representative bodies make the laws and can transfer sovereignty to a supranational level, whose institutions again have democratic legitimacy, either directly, such as the E uropean Parliament, or indirectly because democratically elected national governments have appointed them.

It seems it will be nothing but a regular summit where the heads of state and governments, plus working groups at lower levels – something which the Barcelona process has been already providing for. A t times some E U countries actually worked against each other, the most drastic example being the US -led invasion of Iraq in 2003. H owever, all in all, the area of common E U foreign policy has been expanding, stronger institutions and decision-making procedures have evolved, and capabilities have been growing.
