The aim of the seminar is to analyse how to improve internal coordination and external cooperation among European actors, using the Comprehensive Approach as a guiding principle for EU external action, in the context of different areas from security, to stabilization, capacity building and sustainable development. We will reflect on concepts, actors, security dimensions and the impact of comprehensive action on the EEAS architecture; we will examine the Comprehensive Approach in the context of the European Global Strategy and will discuss cooperation and impact of comprehensive approach strategies in the Sahel region and the Horn of Africa.

ECDPM’s Damien Helly will give a presentation on “The Comprehensive Approach in the making – The Sahel region”.
