European Union

An Integrated Approach to Conflicts

An Integrated Approach to Conflicts

The EU also supports an integrated approach to conflicts and crises, which means addressing all dimensions and stages of a conflict, from early action and prevention, wherever possible to staying on the ground long enough for peace to take root. A particular emphasis is placed on early warning and translating this into early action before a crisis erupts. The EU is also doing more to plan in advance for post-crises reconstruction such as in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria.
