The European Union Code of Conduct on Arms Exports has become an important part of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). The code of conduct is changing the export-licensing policy of EU member-states through the pooling of policy formulation in the European Council. This study aims to investigate the extent to which cooperation within arms exports reflects existing theory on cooperation within the CFSP in general.
