This volume studies the relevance of European integration for conflict settlement and conflict resolution in divided states such as Cyprus or Serbia and Montenegro.

As new states join it and its geopolitical scope expands, the EU finds itself increasingly drawn 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 analyzed through a comparison of four case studies: Cyprus, Serbia and Montenegro, the Moldova and Transnistrian conflict, and the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict.

This book explores the historical background to each of these conflicts and examines the degree of Europeanization in each of the regions concerned, 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.
