Conflict Prevention Partnership

Between September 2005 and September 2006, EPLO, the International Crisis Group (lead partner), International Alert and the European Policy Centre established the Conflict Prevention Partnership (CPP) with the aim of improving the EU’s capacity for conflict prevention, crisis management and peacebuilding.

Funded by the EU, the CPP was a co-operative effort, drawing on the specific expertise of each participating organisation. It provided EU and national policy-makers with timely, focused information and analysis, and practical policy recommendations through the publication and presentation of a series of studies on conflict-related issues. The CPP covered a diverse range of themes from supporting the reintegration of ex-combatants in post-conflict settings to the EU’s peacebuilding efforts in Darfur, the Democratic Ruplic of Congo and the Southern Caucasus.

One of the main outputs of the CPP was the EPLO report entitled Five years after Göteborg: the EU and its conflict prevention potential. Click here to download the EPLO report (also available in French and Spanish.)
