This chapter presents a case study on Europeanisation effects in the context of a failed, or non-negotiated, settlement as in the case of the Kosovo/Serbia conflict. It analyses the European Union's (EU) involvement in the conflict since 1990 and discusses the EU integration strategy for the Western Balkans. The analysis reveals weak direct effects but a strong positive association between the EU influences and the institutional dynamic of the conflict resolution process, measured as political change and reform in Serbia and progress in state-building in Kosovo. This chapter contends that despite significant limitations, the EU has become an indispensable agent of conflict resolution in Kosovo.
