Parts of defence collaboration (such as limited areas of procurement), can be handled, on a functional basis, but national defence responsibility as a whole cannot be allocated piece-by-piece to separate functions whereby it will become amalgamated in a so called community. 27 But Ernst Haas, a functionalist, later converted to neofunctionalism, is sceptical whether these functional loyalties will come about naturally. 28 Haas maintains that normative bonds are not inherent in modern society, but can be developed later on through contractual associations.

Functional analysis also prompts the consideration of whether there are normative bonds in international relations, given the functionalist rejection of a central authority and contractual arrangements. In this sense it is worth investigating why nation states would cooperate in the absence of binding rules and a regulatory international body. NEO-FUNCTIONALISM Neo-functionalism developed as an alternative to functionalism. The monocausal explanation of social activity which functionalism gives was not seen as sufficient by the neo-functionalists, since functionalism did not seek to explain the dynamics behind integration.
