Insight into research findings on EU peacebuilding interventions

This paper highlights and gives insight into the main research deliverables of the WOSCAP project. Its purpose is to highlight and make accessible key topics, learnings and recommendations resulted from the research and relevant to the EU peacebuilding and conflict prevention agenda.


The paper introduces the following:

  • The Country Studies of Ukraine, Georgia, Mali and Yemen. These four country studies take an in-depth look at selected EU policies in each of these countries providing us with detailed insights in the EU policy process and in the ways the EU capabilities are forged and used in selected policy areas.

  • The Desk Studies of selected EU policies in other contexts analyse Kosovo, Afghanistan, Guatemala/Honduras and Sri Lanka. These Desk Studies complement the four country studies with EU policies in other relevant contexts beyond the field research. The Desk Review collects documented lessons learned on these EU policies.

  • The Best Practices Reports, which compile and analyse lessons learned and good practices regarding different EU policies and capabilities. Specifically:

    • ICTs & EU civilian peacebuilding: Reflections on good practices, opportunities and challenges.

    • Local Ownership Challenges in Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention.

    • Civil-Military Synergy at Operational Level in EU External Action.

    • Strengthening the EU Multi-stakeholder coherence in peacebuilding and conflict prevention: examples of good practices.

    • The Role of the EU and Other Third Parties in Promoting the Gender, Peace and Security Agenda in Mediation and Dialogue Processes.
