“Looking ahead to Germany's Presidency of the Council of the EU and beyond: what role for conflict prevention?”
Workshop Report: Expert workshop co-organized by the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO) and the Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) at Bread for the World.
FriEnt and EPLO | 2019
From 1 July 2020, Germany will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) for six months. This Presidency provides an opportunity to further the implementation of the EU’s Integrated Approach to External Conflicts and Crises and the German Guidelines on Preventing Crises, Resolving Conflicts, Building Peace – seeking the prevention of violent conflicts and promoting human security in the short and long term. As Germany’s priorities for the Presidency are currently developed, the aim of this expert workshop was to facilitate dialogue between German and European policy-makers, FriEnt and EPLO members, as well as other civil society experts, and to gather analysis and recommendations on possible peacebuilding aspects of the German Presidency.
