An analysis of the European Union's conflict resolution intervention in post-conflict Crotia and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
Giannaki, Athina (2007) An analysis of the European Union's conflict resolution intervention in post-conflict Crotia and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. [Thesis]
Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) are two countries which have been established after the disintegration of Yugoslavia, in 1991. Shortly after its independence and till 1995 Croatia faced a bloody civil war, between the government and the Serbian minority of the country. FYROM avoided a full scaled war, but it faced a destructive crisis in 2001 between the government and the Albanian minority. The crisis, however, was managed quickly, especially with the help of the international community. This thesis examines the type of European Union’s (EU) intervention, as a third party, in the post-conflict environment of the two countries. A short comparison of the two cases indicates the commonalities and differences between them. The data used in this thesis were mainly gathered from various European Union’s official documents. The results of the thesis suggest that for both cases the EU’s intervention was primarily a structural intervention.
