Working Paper No : 29 (series 2)
Author : Bjørn Møller
Date : February 2008
The paper analyses the European Union as a successful peace project which has managed to transform most of Europe into a security community. It further looks at the progressive enlargement of the EU, not only promoting prosperity and democracy but also spreading the foundations for a stable peace. EU activities that are directly related to security, under the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the European Security and Defence Policy, are also recorded.
