The purpose of the seminars was twofold: (1) to critically engage with local stakeholders on the issues pertaining to just and durable peace and (2) to assess the EU peace-building capacity in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The report Just and Durable Peace in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is a summary of the main themes of discussion.
The regional seminars addressed two sets of related issues: (1) European Union peacebuilding in the Western Balkans and (2) development of a broader EU peacebuilding Framework. The conculsions from the disucssions are summarised in the report Delivering Just and Durable Peace? Evaluating the EU Peacebuilding Strategies in the Western Balkans.
The policy conference aimed to bridge the gap between policy and research and promote dialogue between scholars and practitioners. It addressed the quest for building a just and durable peace in the Middle East and the Western Balkans. A number of policy recommendations were distilled from this critical dialouge.
