        • EU-CIVCAP project will provide a comprehensive, comparative and multidisciplinary analysis of EU civilian capabilities for external conflict prevention and peacebuilding in order to identify ‘the best civilian means to enhance these capabilities’ and address existing shortfalls.

           

          More specifically, this project has identified three inter-related objectives:

          1. To assess EU civilian capabilities for external conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

          2. To identify and document lessons learned and best practices in EU conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

          3. To enhance future policy practice and research on EU conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

           

          The project will gather, synthesise, further develop and disseminate knowledge and learning on civilian conflict prevention and peacebuilding. This will be done through, inter alia, the development of a catalogue of lessons learned and best practices reports, the creation of an expert network, engagement through social media, and the organisation of dissemination events in different formats in this area.

           

          BCSP will employ its research expertise and knowledge of the Western Balkans security dynamics in order to assess the EU capabilities to prevent, react, plan and execute operations in the WB case. 

           

          Also, BCSP will be involved in assessing the EU efforts directed towards local-capacity building and will help develop the tools and approaches to improve EU’s local-capacity building and peace building activities.

           

          In addition, BCSP will provide expertise in analyzing civilian-military synergies and cooperation between EU and other international actors regarding the peace building activities in the region.

           

          BCSP strength is research of gender and security governance, including in relation to peacebuilding.

           

          Lastly, it will provide logistic assistance for organizing a workshop in Belgrade. For this purpose, BCSP is going to use research and policy networks established within its previous work on improvement of Serbian-Albanian relations, analysis of multinational operations in the region so to ensure access for research and involvement of relevant stakeholders.

           

           

          The consortium consists of University of Bristol, Universiteit  Maastricht, Roskilde Universitet, The University Court of the University of Aberdeen, Istituto Affari Internazionali, Centre for European Policy Studies, European Union Satellite Centre, European Peacebuilding Liaison Office, Belgrade Centre for Security Policy and Transparency Solutions Limited.

          This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no.: 653227.
