This paper will try to explain the nature of European actorness, the mode of European policy-making, and the formation of common European interests. What are the pillars of EU power and how does the EU engage in power politics? Has Europe’s normative power of attraction vanished as a consequence of the Euro-crisis? Today Europe is no longer seen as a generator of security and well-being. Its laws and norms are no longer seen as generating efficiency and justice. And the crisis has split Europeans apart making it difficult for them to bring their respective national interests onto line in either economic or security fields.
