The EU Addressing the Challenge of Contested Statehood

The E. U.’s role as an international player began to upgrade alongside the effort to coordinate its external action by adopting a common foreign and security policy (CFSP). In this context, the EU has developed a wide range of policies and policy instruments that fall within its areas of legislative competence and extend from external trade and bilateral relations to the support of democratic institutions and international cooperation. After the end of the Cold –War, the European Union addressed the challenges arising from the emergence of post-conflict states, a considerable number of which were in its neighborhood. The E. U. pursuit of addressing challenges related to contested states has evolved over the years and varies significantly depending on the conflict, the bilateral relations, and the geopolitical context. Peacebuilding and state-building interventions were necessary for the post-conflict transition and socioeconomic rehabilitation of these fragile states with contested sovereignty. The E. U. supported countries in consolidating peace and building a modern state with political and economic means. Moreover, the E. U. has adjusted its interventions to the realities and conditions prevailing in each country. Since the impact of the E. U.’s integrated intervention on contested states remains a research concern, the present dissertation aims to address whether the E. U., as a global power, has the mechanisms and appropriate political skills to face the challenges presented in countries with contested statehood.
