EPLO has published a policy paper on the civilian Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). In the paper, EPLO discusses the impact and effectiveness of CSDP by analysing how the civilian dimension of CSDP can contribute to the reduction of violent conflict and to long-term peacebuilding. The paper puts forward suggestions on how civilian CSDP could be reviewed and provides options for the future development of CSDP.
With this paper, EPLO aims to contribute to the discussions on CSDP that are taking place throughout 2013 in preparation of the European Council meeting in December 2013 which will be dedicated to, among other issues, the further development of the effectiveness and impact of CSDP.
