Copyright This book poses two pertinent questions: First, if a European Executive Order is emerging, how can we empirically see it? First, we recall how the tension was managed under the founding model, and show how successive enlargements made it ever more acute. Such a view also fitted well with the ideal picture of the Council as a rational European problem-solving institution. The United Nations General Assembly: Formal Equality and Size Differences -- 3.

In the case of the small European states, this book has argued, economic flexibility and political stability are mutually contingent. Empirics I: Active Participation -- 4. It argues that international sovereignty is based on the notion of a formal equality between states.
Rather than the size-related capacities of states, it is oftentimes the size of groups and coalitions that is crucial for obtaining enough voting support to successfully pass international norms in an institutional setting that combines non-weighted majority voting with a high number of member states. In particular, the contributors emphasize the importance of power politics, institutional dynamics and lessons of the past. It expresses this equality between its current 193 member states in the policy-initiation, negotiation and decision-taking stages of its policy-cycle. Chapter 6 concludes with a summary of the main findings, a discussion on the extent to which an equalising institutional design can mitigate size-related, real world differences between states and an outlook on the prospects of smaller, less well-resourced states to punch above their weight in international negotiations. A study of 100 different international security negotiations shows that states vary considerably with respect to their negotiation activity.
