Bridging the policy to practice divide in conflict prevention and peace building

WECO A new major evaluation of the European Commission’s support in conflict prevention and peace building will be launched in Brussels on 7 November. The evaluation covers the period 2001-2010 and €7.7billion of funds contracted by the European Commission. While noting progress in the policy framework, instruments and staffing for conflict prevention and peacebuilding, the evaluation report  also points clearly to a significant implementation gap. It provides conclusions and recommendations for the European Commission and the European External Action Service on how these may be addressed. ECDPM provided one of the two independent experts in conflict prevention and peacebuilding for this evaluation, led by the company ADE, and will follow-up on this in its new policy programme focusing on “conflict, security and resilience” from 2012. For more information please contact ECDPM’s Andrew Sherriff.
