Example text

It then adapts the framework to the thematic study of conflict resolution, situating it within prior research examining the conflict resolution effects of European integration. Based on the conceptualisation of Europeanisation as a matrix of top-down, bottom-up, and discursive influences which potentially affect the institutional process of conflict resolution and actors’ behaviour, the chapter outlines the elements of the Europeanisation matrix of conflict resolution: European space of resources and interaction, a causal mechanism, and the conversion of Europeanisation outcomes into policy, political, or institutional sources of conflict resolution.

The process is broader and less coherent than Europeanisation in the context of EU integration. The causal path approximates that of international socialisation (Schimmelfennig et al. 2006). Problematic analytical overlap exists between European integration as a process of creation of EU-level structures of governance and Europeanisation. Cowles et al. (2001) consider the creation of EU institutional rules a component of Europeanisation while Schmidt (2002) places an ontological distinction between the two.

Although the Franco-German case represents the ‘archetypal’ case of conflict resolution in Europe, it cannot be applied as a standard of evaluation in subsequent cases. The book builds an alternative comparative approach by focusing on the sources of variation historically and across cases. Case selection is designed to provide a detailed examination of individual integration mechanisms as they become, or fail to become, applicable to conflict resolution. Structure of the book The book proceeds with a theoretical chapter, titled ‘The Europeanisation of conflict resolution: theory and framework’, which discusses Europeanisation as a construct of middle-range theorising.
