Europeanization and Conflict Resolution: Case Studies from the European

Authors: Bruno Coppieters, Michael Emerson, Michel Huysseune, Tamara

Commentators:  Ghia Nodia and Nicu Popescu

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
