Description of Pact on Stability in Europe

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes pact on stability in europe in the following terms: [1] Signed in 1995, the Pact (known also as the Balladur Plan after its author, French prime minister Edouard Balladur) was a ‘joint action’ under the Common Foreign and Security Policy. It promised a framework for ‘lasting good-neighbourliness’ in Central and Eastern Europe under the aegis of the EUand the OSCE – a pious but unconvincing aspiration in the context of the wars in Bosnia, Kosovo and Chechnya. Doubtless the Pact was also intended to demonstrate the EU’s ability to ‘assert itself on the international scene’.
