Review, reflect, recommend and innovate for conflict prevention

In a bid to improve the EU's conflict-prevention and peacebuilding interventions, EU-funded researchers are assessing the EU's past and ongoing initiatives in several countries around the world. They will then formulate recommendations on what to do in the future.

Academics from Europe and elsewhere are working with peacebuilding practitioners to:

  • review the EU’s past and ongoing conflict prevention and peacebuilding actions;
  • reflect on best practices and lessons learned;
  • recommend adjustments to current practice following an inclusive policy-practice dialogue;
  • identify innovative research priorities and enhance the potential of information and communication technologies.

The review began with an assessment of three types of existing EU interventions: multi-track diplomacy, security sector reform, and governance reform. Field research took place in 2016 in Mali, Yemen, Georgia, and Ukraine, while desk review focused on interventions in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Guatemala and Honduras. The team created a 'community of practice' and is also organising forums for dialogue in many of these countries, bringing together policymakers, civilian and military practitioners, academics and the beneficiaries of EU interventions.

In the the four case studies countries – Georgia, Mali, Ukraine and Yemen – the project is expected to have an impact on the research agenda of local academic institutions, as well as to enhance relationships between local civil society, academia and state actors.

In addition to improving the coherence of EU civilian actions, the team behind WOSCAP also aims to raise awareness and mobilise relevant actors in areas such as mediation, and security sector and governance reform, and to increase understanding of civilian means for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
