As an example, Krasner gives the balance of power in 19th-century Europe, which was the ‘diffuse’ norm which influenced the regime of colonialism. 57 The whole idea of diffuse principles and norms is very important in regime development. In the context of this study, this analysis will be used when defining the Cold War as a diffuse regime, which led to the creation of Western European security cooperation as another regime. What is crucial to this analysis is the maintenance of the Western European security regime, in the absence of the diffuse regime – that is the Cold War – which gave birth to it.

2 Apart from these movements, an attempt was also made to form a federation of Europe within the framework of the League of Nations. 3 It was significant in being the first official formulation of European integration in a concrete political form. However, as an early attempt at federalist integration it was not received with enthusiasm, and was completely abandoned when the Nazis gained electoral success in 1933 and when Briand himself died in 1932. After the war, the failings of the League of Nations and earlier attempts at integration became more significant in the eyes of those who had fought against Nazi aggression.

It is hard to see governments consciously and deliberately making a choice which would put welfare interests first and foremost above all their other national interests, such as security and defence. Of course one could argue that the security and defence of a country also constitutes the welfare of its people. But functionalism’s emphasis on the narrow and technical character of the functions to be undertaken by states seems to rule out the subjects of defence and security in the initial phase of integration, as they belong to the realm of high politics.
