Joining the European Union (EU) has had a transformative effect for the foreign policies of the new member states and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFAs). There is a growing body of literature that analyses Europeanisation of foreign policies of EU member states as a result of their participation in Common Foreign and Security Policy. At the same time, the significance of learning in bringing change in foreign policy remains underexplored avenue of international relations (IR) and foreign policy analysis (FPA). This article demonstrates how learning processes can contribute to the processes of Europeanisation and shows what are the possible inhibitors to institutionalisation of the lessons learnt at individual level.
