Articles addressing current topics related to the EU from a whole of society perspective

This is the second Working Paper produced as part of the project “Whole-of-Society Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding”. The purpose of the WOSCAP working paper series is to highlight and discuss key topics and concepts relevant to the EU’s peacebuilding and conflict prevention agenda, which can be used by policy makers, academics and researchers working in the field, and civil society organizations.

This Working Paper is composed by a collection of short articles, written by various experts involved in the WOSCAP project consortium. The authors have chosen very actual topics that exemplify the relevance of using a whole of society approach to peacebuilding in different contexts and the pitfalls that can be avoided when interventions are done in a coherent and sustainable way.
