In recent years the European Union (EU) has played an increasingly important role as a manager of global conflicts. This book provides a comprehensive assessment of how the EU has performed in facilitating mediation, conflict resolution and peacebuilding across the globe.

Offering an accessible introduction to the theories, processes and practice of the EU's role in managing conflict, the book features a broad range of case studies including Afghanistan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Cyprus, Israel-Palestine, Macedonia and Moldova and examines both the institutional and policy aspects including the common foreign, security and defence policy.

Drawing together a wide range of contributors, this will be of great interest to students of European Foreign Policy, the EU as a global actor and conflict resolution and management.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The European Union as a Global Conflict Manager offers a coherent and detailed assessment of the EU's record in managing various conflicts around the world. The editors combine an analysis of the EU's capabilities with an analysis of the factors shaping specific conflicts, and thus offer a substantive way of assessing the success or failure of EU interventions. Contributors then examine the EU's record in a large number of cases, from Afghanistan to sub-Saharan Africa. The book concludes with a critical analysis of the EU's record (and its limitations as a conflict manager), and provides clear recommendations for improving that record. An important contribution, which should be read by scholars, students and policy-makers across the EU and beyond.

Karen Smith, London School of Economics

"As the EU is confronted with crises in its immediate neighbourhood (Libya, Syria...) and simultaneously with a US that appears to be no longer willing to tackle these for the EU, this comprehensive assessment of the EU's performance as a conflict manager could not be more timely. The lessons which this volume identifies should feed into EU decision-making at this very moment."

Sven Biscop, Egmont Institute.
