An EU Peace Institute?

The governements of Sweden and Finland have called on the EU to set up an independent peace institute.

According to an article which was published by the Associated Press last week, the foreign ministers of both countries made the recommendation in a letter to EU High Representative Catherine Ashton.

This is certainly an interesting idea. EPLO has recently published a set of recommendations on how to promote peacebuilding in the European External Action Service which, hopefully, Sweden and Finland will also support.
