As to the substantial content of foreign policy, Hill sees the central political aspects of this activity as actions, statements and values relating to how the actor wishes to advance its main objectives and to shape the external world (Hill, 2002: 4). Moreover, foreign policy is also an attempt to hold together or control the various activities the actor is engaged in internationally, an attempt to create coherence (Hill, 2002: 4–5). I take Hill’s definition as my point of departure. It has the implication that all official actions of the government machinery (EU or Danish) aimed at the environment outside its boundaries are included.

The focus of this theory is not the Europeanisation of foreign policy, but rather the general foreign policy line in a particular policy field. However, recent application of the theory to explain national foreign policy within the EU – including Danish foreign policy – makes the model interesting to evaluate in this context (N. , 1996; Due-Nielsen and Petersen, 1995). And, not least, the adaptation theory has been the principal theoretical model used in studies of Danish foreign policy (Jørgensen, 1995) which calls for a discussion of the theory in this context.

This might be furthered through an extensive sharing of information at many levels which contributes to a similar framing of issues (via COREU, discussions in Brussels or New York and among EU embassies in third countries). This spread of common discourses might be found even if differences exist on specific policy issues. A strength of the framework (compared with the two previous approaches discussed) is that it includes the issue of whether the content of national foreign policy is conducted with or without the EU.
