Show Summary Details


This chapter considers Europeanisation as a construct of middle-range theorising. It examines the scope, causal processes and outcomes of Europeanisation with a particular emphasis on the implications for model-building. It describes the Europeanisation of conflict resolution as a non-traditional area of Europeanisation related to the capacity of European Union policies and discourses to alter or subsume the organisational logic of the process and induce behavioural change on behalf of the conflict parties. This chapter also outlines the important stages in the Europeanisation of conflict resolution.

Keywords: Europeanisation; conflict resolution; middle-range theorising; European Union; organisational logic
