L'Union européenne et la paix
The European union and peace
The European Union aspires to be a frontrunner in conflict mediation and resolution, democratisation, and human rights. Since the turn of the century, it has increased its interventions and institutional innovations in the area of the civil and military management of international crises, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012.
From a socio-historical perspective, this volume puts forward an analysis of the process of institutionalisation and professionalisation occurring at the European level and presents a panorama of European actors involved in international peace-making. It is illustrated by three cases: the Middle East, Somalia, and Caucasia.
