Multi-stakeholder Coherence at the Core of EU Comprehensiveness

By paying attention to realities both at field-level and in the policy arena in Brussels, this scoping study aims to show that the EU multi-stakeholder approach has been a progressive process. It will first give an overview of the historical developments of the EU multi-stakeholder approach through comprehensive instruments and policies. Then, the study will cover the different multi-stakeholder approaches implemented by the EU in order to work towards enhanced comprehensiveness, first within EU institutions and Member States, with international and regional governmental organisations and with civil society organisations. Each part will be analysed through the prism of coherence, both in terms of inclusivity and of experience of working together. Then, the study will give an overview of the connections and overlaps with other peacebuilding and conflict prevention concepts and approaches.
