Southeast Europe is unfortunately well-known for the security dysfunctions it suffered during the early 1990s and transitional difficulties it has experienced in the post-conflict period. The EU naturally had a big responsibility for the process of conflict-management, peace-keeping and long term consolidation of this part of Europe. The lecture will assess the EU’s displayed capacity to perform as an important factor of stability in the region, taking into account relevant elements of its Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) that was inaugurated at the time the conflict erupted. The lecture will also attempt to analyse in what way an EU accession perspective in the framework of the Stabilisation and Association Policy fostered processes of democratic transition and will try to foresee the possible pace of the finalisation of the enlargement of the EU concerning the remaining candidate states in Southeast Europe.
