The EU, now expanding its geopolitical scope after new states have joined in, 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 here analysed through a comparison of four case-studies: Cyprus, Serbia and Montenegro, Moldova and the Transnistrian conflict, and the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict.
This book explores the historical background to each of these conflicts and examines their degree of Europeanization, the mediation attempts by international security organizations and the way in which efforts to resolve conflicts in these divided states have been linked to closer integration into the EU and other European organizations.
