European Neighbourhood Policy in the Function of International Dispute Settlement

Jonida Mehmetaj


This study aims to analyze the role of the European Union in international dispute settlement, focusing on the European Neighbourhood Policy. The study includes an analysis of the Article 8 of the Treaty on European Union, the position and placement of this provision in the European Union Treaties after the Lisbon Treat as well as the comparison of this new settlement’s previous position of Article 8 of the TEU and its new reflections. The legal framework provides a broad perspective on the relationship of the Common Foreign and Security Policy with the European Neighbourhood Policy. This study will focus on: the reasons for the inclusion or not of this policy in the Common Foreign and Security Policy; the analysis whether the European Neighbourhood Policy has a common goal with the Common Foreign and Security Policy for resolving international conflicts; and it will also investigate the main aim of this policy, if it is the international or neighborhood disputes settlement, or conflict resolution is simply a random placement of this Policy. Furthermore, an important issue to be addressed is whether or not representing the European Neighbourhood Policy is an effective mechanism for resolving disputes, if there was an effective instrument in concrete conflict resolution presented to recent years.
