With the EU continuing to expand its foreign policy platform, including operating as conflict management actors, it is important to analyze their performance thus far. This thesis will outline the goals and capabilities of the European Security and Defense Policy (ESDP), focusing on three varied attempts at conflict management in order to assess whether the EU can and should continue with ESDP. What will be shown is that while ESDP has had some mixed success, there is potential for the EU to be a significant actor in the future. Additionally, the thesis will show that along with conflict resolution and maintenance of peace, successful ESDP operations can lead to important improvements in long-tern human welfare.
