One of the central motivations for the Convention on the Future of Europe was to devise a way for the European Union (EU) to play a stronger and more effective role on the world stage. In spite of the Union's leadership on Kyoto, the Doha Development Round, and the International Criminal Court, a widespread feeling existed that the EU was still not pulling its weight. As the convention entered the home stretch in the spring of 2003, the Iraq crisis exposed deep divisions in the Common Foreign and Security Policy.
