    This paper addresses the potential role of the neutral, non-aligned (NNA) states of the European Union in the development of a common foreign and security policy (CFSP), as well as the unique ability of the NNA’s to deal with traditional conflicts and conflicts arising from non-state actors. The unique perspective and historical role of the NNA’s could bring insight to the European Union’s foreign policy that is lacking in traditional states, thus offering the potential for settlement and/or amelioration of grievances that lead to traditional and non-traditional conflicts both inside and outside the EU’s sphere of influence. I briefly explain the evolution of the CFSP and the unique role of the NNA states in developing a CFSP. Then, the theoretical premise of the study is discussed in detail. Finally, I propose several cases for study in order to assess the potential for successful intervention under the framework of a CFSP- both in traditional and non-traditional types of violent conflicts.
