Common Foreign and Security Policy in Practice: the EU in the Great Lakes

In the Great Lakes where the EU has been playing an increasingly central role, the complexity of the crises affecting the region required a varied and rich toolbox to address them. The development of Common Foreign and Security Policy has provided the EU with the possibility to exert a political role in the GL that goes beyond its community approaches and includes amongst its objectives, peacemaking initiatives to foster good governance and justice. The research project intended to investigate how CFSP has informed the formulation and implementation of EU policies in the GL. Whilst assessing EU’s achievements in the area, it intended to focus on the challenges facing the EU with particular issues of coordination and coherence of the EU’s political, developmental and security objectives affecting the region.
