Languages of publication
This summary study presents main sources, key objectives, theoretical and methodological framework, short analysis of four fundamental options of EU impact on border conflicts and the main recommendations and conclusions of the international research project named “The European Union and Border Conflicts: The Impact of Integration and Association (EUBorderConf)“. This project was primarily focused on research of EU impact and role in particular political dimensions and problems connected to border conflict issues. The international research team under the supervision of project coordinators from the University of Birmingham was dealing with the question of role which a process of EU integration and association can play in a specific border conflict case. The project research team has elaborated a model of four various pathways by which EU can have a direct or indirect impact on a concrete conflict case including a model of four conflict stages. This model is also largely based on process of conditionality and socialization. According to project authors the EU can have a positive or negative impact on a conflict according to suitability of chosen pathway. A model of conflict stages can serve for determination of negative or positive impact of EU.
