Abstract:Cyber security as a global challenge is increasingly perceived as one of the most pressing topics in the forthcoming years. How it will be managed and how cooperative executed actions will be, is in turn the subject of debate in both, political sciences, as well as security studies. The European Union as a paragon in integration matters is analysed with a focus on three Member States being France, The United Kingdom, and Germany. Based on two intergovernmental strands, being the neo realist work of Joseph M. Grieco and liberal intergovernmentalism by Andrew Moravscik, the cyber security efforts of the three countries, as well as the EU-wide efforts are analysed. In doing so, and via the addition of global bi- and multilateral agreements, it is revealed that EU Member States follow a certain pattern and behaviour explainable by intergovernmentalism. Neo realism, as well as liberal intergovernmentalism are shown to be applicable to the field of cyber security. Accordingly, future realist examination of cyber security efforts is stimulated.
