Roundtable

The EU and Peacebuilding – Taking Stock

Start:
26 March 2015 2:00 pm
End:
26 March 2015 6:00 pm

Background

The EU has been committed to ‘preserve peace, prevent conflicts and strengthen international security’ since the Lisbon Treaty (Article 21.2(c)). While the EU has been developing several tools and resources to respond to conflict, the global environment has been changing too, with a series of acute crises and more and increasingly complex conflicts taking place around the world. This roundtable aims at taking stock of these external and internal changes in order to identify opportunities and challenges to make the EU more effective at building peace.

Objectives

  • Identify key trends in conflicts and armed violence and their implications for the EU
  • Take stock of the EU’s strengths in responding to conflict
  • Gather recommendations to improve the EU’s response to conflict, including for the upcoming review of the European Security Strategy and evaluation of the EEAS, as well as the implementation of the Comprehensive Approach.

ECDPM’s Andrew Sherriff will act as a resource person at the roundtable discussion.
