Post-conflict Syria: Which EU civilian capabilities for reconstruction?


If and when the Geneva diplomatic process will generate a peace deal for Syria, then the attention will immediately shift to implementation of the agreement. This seminar is intended to critically assess the non-military instruments which the EU could bring to bear to that post-conflict international peacebuilding effort. As such, the seminar provides an ex ante evaluation of the relevance of the tools in the EU’s kit, and apply it to one of the most dramatic crisis situations in the EU’s neighbourhood.

The seminar is organised in cooperation with partners in the ‘EU-CIVCAP’ project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 653227. For more information, see http://www.eu-civcap.net.
