My general goal in this presentation, as it is for all of us at this workshop, is to examine the Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe: the "pearl of the German presidency of the European Union" adopted in Köln on 10 June 1999, the day that NATO's 78-day bombing campaign of Serbia ceased.

This juxtapositioning of events is important as it apparently took the Kosovo conflict (but not the Bosnian conflict alone!) to encourage European states and other members of the international community, to respond to events in the Balkans with something like the Stability Pact.

As we all know, the Stability Pact represents an ambitious attempt to deal with the Balkans on a regional basis, recognizing that all political units and conflicts in the region are components of a larger whole; such that to deal effectively with any one unit or conflict means that, ultimately, the others - and their interconnections - have to be dealt with as well, if not simultaneously, then certainly in sequence.
