The EU and international organisations - partners in crisis management

25 October 2005
Fraser Cameron (Senior Adviser to EPC on international programmes)



The European Security Strategy states that the European Union stands for "effective multilateralism", defined as "the development of a stronger international society, well-functioning international institutions and a rule-based international order". To promote effective multilateralism and ensure conflict prevention and crisis management remain a priority, the EU must seek to strengthen both its own role in the major international institutions as well as the institutions themselves. This is the key message from an Issue Paper on The EU and international organisations: partners in crisis management. This Issue Paper is a contribution to the Conflict Prevention Partnership (CPP), a project funded by the European Commission that involves the International Crisis Group, International Alert, European Peacebuilding Liaison Office and the EPC.
