The EU’s policy in the Mediterranean is typical of an incremental policy. Although 9/11 has provided a policy window for Europeans to put forward a vision of dialogue and democratization in the region, changes have remained incremental and reflect past patterns of elite-bounded reforms and a technical approach to rule of law that still concentrates on the means rather than on the ends. The Arab revolts also provide another opportunity, but it is too early to provide a thorough assessment. Although the case study on border management (Chapter 4) demonstrates that Member states opted for a cost/benefit analysis when establishing Frontex, this does not mean that the interaction of ‘rational-choice’ actors necessarily resulted in the designing of a proper policy strategy.

The development of JHA policy is taking place through ‘disjointed incrementalism’, a process by which the EU and its Member states have been coping with transnational security issues in a reactive way, without clearly identifying any particular strategy. The term ‘disjointed incrementalism’ has been put forward by Charles Lindblom, who argues that most of the time policies ‘necessarily evolve gradually through a pluralistic and highly conflictual process’ (Hayes 2001a). Bargaining and compromises among the different actors, but also delays, are characteristic of incremental policies.

Recent developments in European integration constitute a challenge for neo-realists (Pollack 2000: 2). Contrary to the predictions of Mearsheimer, the end of the Cold War has not led to a slowing down of European integration: quite the reverse (Pollack 2000: 2). Since Maastricht, the Amsterdam Treaty and the multiplication of European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) missions over the world, EFP has developed considerably. Instruments and objectives have been fine-tuned, as exemplified by the European Security Strategy (ESS).
