An in-depth research report drawing conclusions on strengths, challenges and opportunities of EU interventions in conflict prevention and peacebuilding

WOSCAP Working paper 1

The Working Paper series will disseminate the findings of the scoping studies and Best Practices reports in a public format, presented in the project corporate style.

Case study report Georgia

Respecting the unique nature of each case, the reporting will try to enhance comparability of the cases by adopting a joint format that leaves enough space to include any particular data from each individual case. Each case study report will for example relate to the conflict history, context and legacy, the EU intervention (against the background of other relevant interventions), the specific EU capabilities according to the focal clusters and themes, specific impact of EU activities, possible areas for improvement and recommendations. The case study reports will benefit from advice and feed-back from the work package lead, local partners and the community of practice and will be subject to the quality assurance system.

A qualitative review will be carried out amongst relevant EU policymakers and staff in Brussels to assess the institutional framework in relation to the EU’s Comprehensive Approach to conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

Theoretical framework paper

The paper will outline the research approach, assumptions, research methodology, and Lexicon for the project methodology.

Policy Recommendations Paper & engagement strategy

Copies of ethical approvals

The proposed research will be submitted to an ethics committee at the national level, if such committees do exist and approval by them is legally required. We know that this is not the case in several countries. In the Netherlands, for example, such committees do not exist for the social sciences and humanities. However, if such committees do exist and approval is required in any of the countries where we operate, copies of ethical approvals by the competent Ethics Committees will be submitted to the EU before the end of month 5.
