We thereby try to answer the question of what the "Franco-German engine" actually is and how it works in theory and practice. We start our analysis by discussing the "Franco-German engine" in theoretical terms. Our stylized model is then applied to a selection of empirical cases relating to different decision categories as well as policy areas. Our results show that there is little evidence for an important "Franco-German engine" in "day-to-day" policy-making in Brussels, but that there is indeed a causal effect of a "Franco-German engine" on "history-making decisions" in the realms of the Single Market, Schengen, EMU, and CFSP. Scope conditions - in particular the preference spectrum amongst all EU member states - strongly determine the functioning but also the chances of success of common Franco-German integration initiatives.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/24757"/> <dcterms:title>Which mechanics drive the "Franco-German engine"? : An analysis of how and why France and Germany have managed to shape much of today's EU</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>L'Europe en Formation ; 4 (2012), 366. - S. 45-83</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Radtke, Kerstin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Radtke, Kerstin</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/24757/2/Leuffen_247576.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
