'Policy Papers' a new ICIP publication

The ICIP has begun a new series of publications analysing and discussing issues related to public policy in the field of peace and security, Policy Papers. The first issue in the series, published in June, is entitled At the forefront or drifting? Ten years on from the European Union's Conflict Prevention Programme. The analysis, by the researcher Julia Schünemann, assesses the programme over its 10 years of implementation, highlighting its shortcomings, and including recommendations to improve it and move towards a real policy of prevention rather than mere crisis management. The Policy Papers are published electronically in Spanish, Catalan and English.
