Activity of the European Union with the Aim of Restoring Stability in Kosovo

Paulina Szelag

In 1992 the Common Foreign and Security Policy was established by the Treaty of Maastricht. However, it is said that the CFSP is weak and inactive, being based on unanimous consensus among the member states, the European Union has made some progresses in this area of its activities.Currently, the EU is conducting 13 operations under its Common Security and Defense Policy. One of these is the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo, which is the largest of the European Union civilian missions ever taken. The aim of my paper is to show the impact of the EU on the process of stabilization and reconstruction in that region. To fulfill this goal, I am going to analyze the key documents of the European Union. My presentation will also be based on the publications which I have collected during my researches at the Roosevelt Study Center in Middelburg and at the Peace Palace Library in the Hague. Additionally, my paper would also compare the EU’s efforts in bringing back peace and stabilization in Kosovo to their outcomes. To reflect this issue, I am going to present the most reliable reports, which were published by the Human Rights Watch.
