EU as International Mediator Collaborative Research Network

Dr Toni Haastrup and Professor Richard Whitman

The EU as International Mediator (EAIM) network seeks to create a platform to launch research into new knowledge on the EU’s role in international crisis through mediation. Whereas mediation plays an important role in conflict analysis theory, its study remains nascent in scholarship on European Union’s international role. This network seeks to bring together the wider corpus of understanding on mediation as an initial step to the study of the EU’s developing role as mediator and as a component of its wider foreign and security policy. The network will allow for dialogue and collaboration between colleagues with background in conflict studies seeking to understand mediation and its dynamics, and those seeking to account for actions conducted by the EU.
