The European Union's ability to unite in pursuit of agreed foreign policy goals is often underrated in Britain, where failures are seized on and successes ignored or taken for granted.

Three years ago an art installation in Trafalgar Square charted the journey of a sex-trafficked girl from Eastern Europe to a Western brothel. A powerful clarion call, it inspired Lucy Kirkwood's hit It Felt Empty When the Heart Went at First But It Is Alright Now.

The International Court of Justice's ruling in favour of Kosovo's independence has stunned both Serbs and Kosovo Albanians, while prompting fears that it may encourage separatist movements the world over.

Instead, the judges' non-binding advice sides more clearly with the Albanians than anyone expected.
