Executive Summary:

In an increasingly complex world, the EU is one of the few international organizations actively engaged in conflict prevention, crisis management, and peacebuilding efforts. The political significance of deploying a CSDP operation or mission is in itself great as it shows Europe’s international commitment to help crisis situations. However, there are increasing calls to show effectiveness in conflict prevention and crisis management requiring broad analysis of the way current operations and missions are conducted. In the analysis of some 1000 pages of study reports including over 200 1interviews and a quantitative survey to identify lessons, five central findings on EU’s crisis management were made. They are briefly represented here. Policy initiatives and proposals can be found in other IECEU-project material.
