IECEU field visit to the Palestinian territories and Israel


Crisis Management Centre (CMC) Finland participates in the IECEU project by conducting two of a total of eight case studies, focusing on the Palestinian territories and Libya.

The study on the Palestinian Territories focuses on the two EU Common Security and Defence policy (CSDP) missions in the area: the European Union Police Mission for the Palestinian Territories (EUPOL COPPS) and the European Union Border Assistance Mission in Rafah (EUBAM Rafah). Both missions were established in late 2005. For already a decade EUPOL COPPS has been supporting strengthening Palestinian Civil Police and criminal justice mechanisms. Due to political and security situation, EUBAM Rafah’s activities in Gaza have been suspended since mid-2007.
