European conflicts 20 years after Dayton [December 2015]

From Turkey's instability to the war in Ukraine. Lessons learnt and the intervention of the European Union

In 1995, the Dayton Peace Agreement stopped the war in Bosnia Herzegovina. In the last 20 years the global order, as well as the European Union and the Western Balkans, underwent significant changes. Adopting a European perspective, this position paper reconsiders the changes intervened and the capacity of the European Union to act in the international sphere, keeping in mind that the multiplication of conflicts in the regions bordering the EU poses critical challenges also at the domestic level, as epitomized by jihadist terrorism.
