Executive Summary:

CSDP missions and operations have undergone significant changes over the last decades. Whereas in the early days of CSDP engagement, the focus was on police/rule of law missions and military operations, nowadays the EU has conducted or is conducting 34 missions and operations on three continents encompassing a broad range of types of missions and instruments that are being deployed. The change of the security environment in which the EU operates as well as the emergence of new actors requires new policy approaches and solutions, also in the context of the EU’s CSDP.
Based on the 8 case studies and 12 missions/operations analysed within IECEU as well as three policy dialogues with relevant stakeholders and institutions, the deliverable aims to provide new policy approaches and solutions as well as recommendations for further steps to enhance the effectiveness of the CSDP crisis management operations. By focusing on the six capabilities as defined in the methodology of the IECEU project, the deliverable provides 14 recommendations that will be further analysed and tested in deliverable 7.3.
