Abstract: Christ’l De Landtsheer & Philippe De Vries, Political Communication Research Unit, Antwerp University

This paper presents the results of an indirect assessment of the personality of three leading Belgian politicians at the EU level, Herman Van Rompuy (president), Karel De Gucht (commissioner) and Guy Verhofstadt (president of the liberal faction in the European Parliament). The study was conducted with the Immelman method (e.g. 1993) and from the conceptual perspective of Theodore Millon’s model of personality.

Information concerning Van Rompuy and De Gucht was collected from biographical sources and media reports and synthesized into a personality profile using the second edition of the Millon Inventory of Diagnostic Criteria (MIDC), which yields 34 normal and maladaptive personality classifications congruent with Axis II of DSM–IV.

The personality profiles yielded by the MIDC were analyzed on the basis of interpretive guidelines provided in the MIDC and Millon Index of Personality Styles manuals

The major implication of the study is that it offers an empirically based personological framework for anticipating leadership styles as chief executives by Van Rompuy, De Gucht and Verhofstadt.

Abstract: Public opinion plays as strong role in creation and implementation of public policies. Important political issues animate stronger public sentiments, bringing in more public attention to the issue and greater presure on the policy makers. At the given moment, the EU integration process is one of the most important political process in South-East Europe. On the other side, in the political and public debate of the EU the question of further enlargement raises a substantial attention. The aim of the paper is to take a case study of one country and to explore how does the public opinion influence the process of EU integration of that country. The country taken for testing will be the Republic of Macedonia. The influence of the public will be explored at two levels, firstly:- How does the public in Macedonia influence the process of EU integration of the Republic of Macedonia?and secondly:- How does the public in the EU influence the process of EU integration of the Republic of Macedonia?For the analysis of the public opinion in the Republic of Macedonia toward the issue of EU integration materials from the data base of the Institute for Democracy "Societas Civilis" (IDSCS) in Skopje will be used. IDSCS conducts regular public opinion polls on behalf of the Secretariat for European Issues of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia. The published surveys and analysis can be found at www.sei.gov.mk. In the paper data from 2004 to 2006 will be used for the analysis.For the analysis of the public opinion in the EU toward the issue of EU integration materials from the data base of the Eurobarometer surveys will be used. Eurobarometer is a compilation of surveys conducted in all EU Member States on the same set of questions. The published surveys and analysis can be found at www.eu.int. In the paper data from 2004 to 2006 will be used for the analysis.

Abstract: The promotion of order in the Balkans (within the context of a larger European context) has been the central policy concern of states and international organizations since the early 1990s. The existence and the persistence of the conflict seemed to challenge the new possibilities for security and stability in Europe. It is very much in response to the Balkan crises that the EU had to develop its order-promotion identity. In the wake of the Kosovo crisis this identity was transformed into committed policy-making both towards the region as well as its larger external relations. This was reflected in the understanding that the countries of the Balkans no longer represented a distant abroad but potential candidates. This shift of policy suggests that the accession, association and partnership activities of the Southeast European states can extend the EU's order to the region by initiating the development of a nascent security community in the region. The justification for such supposition derives from the history of trust-promotion among the member states of the EU. The establishment of order in the region is made out in the promotion of security community practices in Southeastern Europe through the socialization by and in EU-initiated activities. It is significant that at the current stage, the EU involvement in the Balkans is actively engaging regional state elites in activities that intend to bring their decision-making in line with promoted standards. Therefore, the current state of affairs in Southeastern Europe can be described as the establishment of an elite security community. It is a type of a nascent security community that promotes a framework for strategic interaction between the EU and Balkan state elites, through which the EU advances its interests and values, while building regional consensus on the objectives of policy-making. The EU's power of attraction (i.e. coercion) maintains a broad agreement on the fundamental rules of such contractual relations. The interaction among elites within this context promotes the transfer of Euro-Atlantic standards to their policy-making. In such pattern of relations, Balkan state elites are bounded by the norms of prescribed behavior (which includes regional cooperation) or risk punishment. Thus, the experiences from following prescribed patterns of behavior inform the decision-making process and modify its framework towards expected habits and policy outcomes.
