Welcome to the project "Whole of Society Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding", or WOSCAP. Its objective is to enhance the capabilities of the EU for implementing conflict prevention and peacebuilding interventions through sustainable, comprehensive and innovative civilian means.

It will assess the current capabilities, and identify gaps, best practices, lessons learned and research priorities. In addition, a ‘community of practice' and forums for dialogue will bring together policymakers, civilian and military practitioners, academic experts and the beneficiaries of EU interventions. It will produce a tailored set of recommendations on what policy priorities and information and communication technologies are needed for effective civilian conflict prevention.

This space will contain updates on progress, latest publications, upcoming events, and more. Find what you are looking for in one the following sections, which respond to the project's 4 sub-objectives:

To assess past and ongoing conflict prevention and peacebuilding initiatives of the EU and its partners. 

To create an evidence base of best practices and lessons learned, in order to identify capability gaps in current EU and partner engagements, and elaborate options for change and potential improvements in long-term peacebuilding efforts by civilian means. 

To complement and adjust existing capacities, policies, and initiatives for conflict prevention and peacebuilding, through an inclusive policy-practice dialogue and the development of policy recommendations.

To make a significant contribution to civilian conflict prevention and peacebuilding, by identifying future research priorities, and enhancing the potential of information and communication technologies.
