TOWARDS A EUROPEAN UNION MEDIATION SERVICE
This book advocates a lasting solution to the ongoing problems of conflict on the borders of the European Union, and proposes that Europe establish a formal mediation service within its existing diplomatic structures, available in times of emergency, in all conflicts, great and small, that affect the lives of the citizens of the European continent as a whole, and not just members of the existing European Union. Similarly, the EUMS would be available as a neutral service to assist neighbouring non-European countries to resolve their disputes amicably and non-violently. The European Union can afford to create this service. The European Union cannot afford not to create it. This could be part of the peace dividend that we have all been waiting for ever since the ending of the cold war in 1990, and which the citizens of Europe have hitherto been tragically denied, especially in the Balkans.
