11, as over humanitarian aid to Bosnia, have been delinquent in the extreme in meeting their obligations. Jörg Monar (1997a) has said that tensions over CFSP financing will remain for the foreseeable future, attenuated only by procedural tinkering. The Treaty of Amsterdam has made a real effort to face up to the problem, and has ‘tinkered’ on the grand scale, producing a new Article 18, with a complex Inter-Institutional Agreement between Parliament, Council and Commission, which aims to avoid the difficulties of the past few years by providing mechanisms for advance consultations and consensus-building.

There are four major categories of these demands: • From developing countries. The ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific) states are becoming increasingly concerned lest the EU lose interest in development policy, as there are certainly signs of them doing. Now that seventy-one states are Associates of the Lomé Convention, including all states from Sub-Saharan Africa and even South Africa, in qualified form, it is clear that the idea of ‘Eur-Afrique’ has not lost its allure. Although the ACPs complain about their declining advantages relative to other poor countries, their aim is to extend ties with the EU rather than to seek alternative sources of help.

The trend may indeed have been in this direction, but the matter is not so simple as it might appear from a personifying approach. Structural forces exist which keep expectations up just as they limit the growth of capabilities. Internal expectations It is inside the EU where expectations have been lowered most in relation to the CFSP. The morale of the Commission in this area has suffered a collapse, with the game of musical chairs over the roles of DG I, IA and IB a symptom of uncertainty.
