Special Issue - Europeanization and Conflict Resolution: Case Studies from the European Periphery
Authors: Bruno Coppieters, Michael Emerson, Michel Huysseune, Tamara Kovziridze, Gergana Noutcheva, Nathalie Tocci and Marius Vahl
The EU - expanding its geopolitical scope now that new states have joined it - is finding itself drawn more and more into dealing with the legacy of secessionist conflicts at its southern and eastern peripheries. How relevant is European integration for conflict settlement and conflict resolution in divided states? That question is analysed through a comparison of four case-studies here: Cyprus, Serbia and Montenegro, Moldova and the Transnistrian conflict, and the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict.
This study explores the historical background to each of these conflicts and examines their degree of Europeanization, the mediation attempts made by international security organizations, and the way in which efforts to resolve conflict in these divided states have been linked to closer integration into the EU and other European organizations.
Funded by the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office, this publication is the result of a collaborative research project undertaken by the Department of Political Science of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels, VUB) and the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS).
