A eu safeguard structure after the chilly battle offers a serious account of the re-projection and redefinition of Western values and safeguard associations within the post-Coldwar period. this variation is explored in 3 phases. the 1st degree covers the interval 1990-91 and explains the maintenance of a `western safety group' inherited from the chilly conflict, via a strategy of institutional reconstruction principally conducted on paper. the second one degree from 1991 to 1992 sees the incorporation of a `purpose' for those associations as a framework for the implementation of collective safeguard. The 3rd level explores the rising questions of legitimacy surrounding the hot projects of those associations as they turn into embroiled within the conflict within the former Yugoslavia. The precedents of valid intervention in upholding democracy, loose markets and human rights within the post-coldwar period are tested from the views of overseas legislations and Gramscian derived techniques of legitimacy, targeting the attractiveness of army strength through civil society, and the way intervention in those phrases turns into a 'cultural practice'.

51 From this, Stein concludes that changes in the distribution of power could lead to regime change. However, he also points out that regimes may be maintained even after the interests which gave rise to them are no longer valid. 53 However, Puchala and Hopkins maintain that although the distribution of power is the major cause of regime change and development, it is not the only one, whereas for Stein, the distribution of power and self interests are the only determinants of regime dynamics. Using the same approach as Puchala and Hopkins, Oran Young also places power as one of the explanations for regime change, but not the only one.

60 iii) The importance actors attach to their reputations, and their unwillingness to break with customary international behaviour from fear of damaging their reputations. 61 These three explanations for regime maintenance in the absence of the patterns of interests which gave rise to it, will be applied in the last chapter, when looking at prospects for European security cooperation in the 1990s. Regimes and Security Cooperation The writers on regime theory mentioned so far, did not base their findings on security cooperation.

No single theory can replace the others even if it seeks to address the anomalies which have risen in connection with its predecessors. This is because in the social sciences, unlike the natural sciences, new paradigms do not entirely replace the old ones. 72 Kuhn goes on to explain that each paradigm eventually faces anomalies or contradictions which it cannot solve. This is then followed by what Kuhn terms a scientific revolution in which the existing paradigm will be called into question by the scientific community, who in endeavouring to solve the anomaly will eventually come up with a new paradigm able to explain the anomaly, replacing the old paradigm.
