This introductory chapter explains the objective of this volume, which is to explore the peace and conflict resolution role of European integration by testing its somewhat vague, albeit well-established, macro-political rationale of a peace project in the practical settings of conflicts. It examines how the European Union is causally important for conflict resolution by using analytical tools specific to integration studies, drawing upon theories and frameworks explaining the modus operandi of European integration. This volume argues that European integration as a peace project cannot be explained by macro-level theories as they tend to prioritise individual aspects of the phenomenon leaving aside the potential interaction effects of these attributes. It provides case studies of conflict resolution related to the Franco-German relationship, Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Kosovo/Serbia conflict.
