The Europeanisation of conflict resolution : regional integration and conflicts in Europe from the 1950s to the twenty-first century by Boyka Stefanova( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the EU?s role in conflict resolution and reconciliation in Europe. Ever since it was implemented as a political project of the post-World War II reality in Western Europe, European integration has been credited with performing conflict resolution functions. It allegedly transformed the long-standing adversarial relationship between France and Germany into a strategic partnership. Conflict in Western Europe became obsolete. The end of the Cold War further reinforced its role as a regional peace project. While these evolutionary dynamics are uncontested, the deeper meaning of

The European Union beyond the crisis : evolving governance, contested policies, and disenchanted publics by Boyka Stefanova( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores institutional and policy developments in the EU and its member states in a parallel examination of citizens' views of the effectiveness of crisis response reflected in public trust, output legitimacy, and satisfaction with democracy. Our approach to understanding the crisis posits EU-level governance and institutional change, national-level policymaking, and domestic politics as interrelated, interdependent domains of political action and public spheres that collectively shape the political landscape of post-crisis Europe. The volume sheds new light on the relationship among the institutional, policy, and polity consequences of the crisis. The book has two fundamental aims. The first is to demonstrate the interconnected nature of European governance, domestic reform, and democratic politics. The unprecedented complexity of the financial, sovereign debt, economic, and social crises in Europe has led to a political crisis that reflects the struggle to effectively address its various causes and effects. The second objective is to present a theoretically informed assessment of the consequences of the European crises for state-society relations and democratic legitimacy. Our analysis of the crisis in a variety of national contexts and European governance highlights the difficulties faced by political decision-makers. We find that the domestic policy process is selectively affected or disconnected from the process of rule-making at the EU level, that public opinion still matters in the process of policy formation and EU crisis response, and that the salience of the EU agenda in the domestic public sphere increasingly depends on the preferences of political actors. Public response to the crisis has become increasingly complex as well, ranging from declining trust in the political institutions, emerging national stereotypes, changing expectations of the EU level of crisis response, growing disconnect between political parties and voters, and evolving intra-regional distinctions across the EU's east-west divide. --Provided by publisher

The Baltic states' accession to NATO and the European Union: an extension of the European security community? by Boyka Stefanova( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The article explores the processes of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and EU (European Union) enlargement with respect to the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It assumes that Western Europe is an established security community and seeks to determine the consequences of any imminent Baltic accession for the geopolitical configuration of Europe. Given their proximity and complex relationship with Russia, the future institutional affiliation of the Baltic states can be regarded as a test of the probability and direction of change in the density and characteristics of the Western security community. The article draws a conclusion about the necessary, however contested, character of the Baltic states' future membership in the Euro-Atlantic structures. Baltic accession would reinforce the community configuration prevailing in the region, and facilitate NATO's transformation from a military alliance into a political union. However, the same process still presents a number of challenges: the extension of the security community is not necessarily beneficial for its environment

The European dimension of minority political representation : Bulgaria and Romania compared by Maria Spirova( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The political integration of ethnic minorities is one of the most challenging tasks facing the countries of post-communist Europe. The roads to their political representation in the mainstream political process are numerous and diverse. The EU accession of the Central and East European countries has expanded the scope of the political participation of minorities by adding an electoral process at the regional level: the elections for members of the European Parliament. This article presents a comparative study of the ways in which EU-level electoral processes affect the scope and quality of minority representation on the example of the participation of ethnic political parties in Bulgaria and Romania in the 2007 and 2009 electoral cycles of the European Parliament."--Editor

Vanessa Colón, student member of the President's Peace Commission, serves as the moderator for this session. She introduces the two speakers: Robert L. Summers, Jr., J.D., School of Law, Director, LLM Programs, St. Mary's University; and, Boyka Stefanova, Ph. D., Political Science Department, University of Texas at San Antonio. Prof. Summers described the international law aspects of the crisis in Darfur. He describes the treaties which Sudan has ratified, but has not observed. He also points out that not only has Sudan not observed certain treaties, but that the international community has not been enforcing the treaties within Sudan, which has led to the current crisis in Darfur. Dr. Stefanova spoke about the history of Sudan -- it has been in continual state of civil war since 1956, except for a brief 12-year period. She further discusses how the international community has failed to protect the citizens of Sudan. A question and answer session concludes this video
