Peacebuilding : EU action throughout the world

Human Rights, Co-op & Development,

News The EU's contribution to peacebuilding consists of a wide array of activities and instruments largely unknown to the public

From peace negotiations, to disarmament, de-mining, civil administration and good governance, democratisation, strengthening the rule of law, justice reform, rehabilitation and reconstruction operations, election observations, etc. The EU is active on all fronts and all around the world! In human rights matters, for instance, the EU has helped to reinforce the role of the human rights mediator in Guatemala right after the civil war. The EU also supported the creation of a strong and efficient International Penal Court to make sure that war crimes do not remain unpunished. Likewise, the Union also contributed financially to the creation of special tribunals, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the Special Court for Sierra Leone and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Since 2000, the EU has deployed a total of 34 election observation missions, with the help of thousands of observers, in countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. The EU is also strongly involved in de-mining operations in Colombia, Cambodia and Angola. Following the numerous conflicts in Africa, the Union decided in 2003 to establish a peace facility for Africa. With a budget of €250 million, this peace facility aims to reinforce the African Union's ability to launch peace-making and peacekeeping operations, as in Darfur (Sudan), for instance.
