Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding: Lessons for the EU

The final conference of the Horizon 2020 project EU-CIVCAP serves to showcase the key lessons and best practices identified in the project’s research and the relevance of its main findings for policy-makers and practitioners in EU conflict prevention and peacebuilding. 

The discussion in the three thematic panels will serve to articulate policy implications and test the practicalities of implementing the project’s main recommendations to improve EU capabilities for conflict prevention and peacebuilding. The conference will also map relevant ongoing policy processes in the context of the implementation of the EU Global Strategy, in particular, current discussions about the Global Civilian Compact, the Joint Communication on resilience, the integrated approach to conflicts and crises, and the MFF negotiations.
