Europe's Return to United Nations Peacekeeping

A UACES Research Network (2014-2017)


This international collaborative research network will bring together an alliance of leading EU and US think tanks in order to examine the core challenges, opportunities and ways ahead for the European Union and a select number of European countries' efforts to intensify their efforts within the United Nations Peacekeeping system.

The overall aim is to provide comprehensive analysis as well as actionable and timely advice on the main challenges and concrete ways ahead for overcoming institutional, political and military obstacles (both at European capitals and within the UN system) on the path towards a stronger re-engagement of European countries in the field of UN Peacekeeping.
