This book asks: Does the European Union have the diplomatic
clout to contribute effectively to peace in the world? It stems
from the premise that the EU is under a legal obligation and moral
duty to work toward the peaceful settlement of disputes between or
within third countries. Reviewing the Union's track record in
"peacemaking" since 1991 (the Balkans, the Middle East Peace
process, Iran's nuclear program), it becomes evident that while the
EU is equipped with a rich tool box, it has so far used the
diplomatic instruments at its disposal in an ad-hoc fashion.
Author Steven Blockmans suggests ways and means to overcome this
problem. He focuses on capacity-building efforts within the
European External Action Service, the Union's diplomatic service,
that supports the High Representative and other EU external actors
in carrying out their peacemaking tasks.
