Log-in for full text

This chapter analyses the value reversals which led Europe away from its inglorious history of war: a commitment to international law; supra-national supervision of human rights by the Strasbourg Court; the creation of a European Zone of Peace and the dedication of European national armies to peacekeeping and peacemaking; the substitution of aid for colonialism; the abolition of capital punishment; global ecological action; and the International Criminal Court. It identifies the European Union's role in peacekeeping. It concludes that the result of this developing peacekeeping and peace enforcement activity is that Europe is now an extraordinarily positive force in the world.
