The European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO), with the support of the European External Action Service (EEAS) and the European Commission (EC), is organising a training seminar on Peacebuilding Advocacy towards the European Union (EU), on 29 – 30 June 2017, in Brussels.
The training seminar will analyse the EU’s institutional capacity regarding conflict prevention and peacebuilding. It will enable the participants to increase their understanding of the EU as a foreign policy actor, learn about obstacles and potential of the EU to do effective peacebuilding and provide them with concrete examples of advocating for more effective policies and programmes on conflict prevention and peacebuilding at EU level.
The training seminar will not address EU funding opportunities but will focus on EU policy on peace and conflict and advocacy towards the EU on these issues.
You can find more information in the concept note.
The training seminar is open to representatives from peacebuilding civil society organisations. The number of people we can accommodate is limited; therefore a selection will be made based upon applications received. Accommodation and travel costs for non-Brussels-based selected participants will be covered.
