This dissertation seeks to assess the degree of integration in the sector of security and defense of the European Union. The emphasis is brought on the Solana era, 1999-2009, as Mr. Solana was the first High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the EU. His mandate was axiomatic in shaping a common security strategy for the Union. In order to measure the degree of integration, this dissertation applied an eclectic theoretical approach on three case studies looking at three distinct levels of analysis: domestic, homeland counterterrorism; regional, energy security vis-à-vis Russia; international, EUPOL Afghanistan mission.
