By providing a platform for the presentation of new ideas and concepts, as well as analysis of current and past activities, this yearbook intends to contribute to a better understanding of objectives, instruments and long-term stategies of conflict prevention.


Since the European Parliament and the European Commission launched the "Conflict Prevention Network" in 1997, many experts, policy makers, field actors and academics, have contributed to the development of a European policy of conflict prevention. Such a policy is aimed at improving proactive European Union Foreign Policy in case of violent conflicts.


The CPN yearbooks illustrate the outcome of a forum open to the discussions among the conflict prevention experts. This second volume includes contributions from Member of European Parliament Tom Spencer and Commissioner João de Deus Pinheiro, along with thirteen articles from specialists within the conflict prevention community analysing recent engagements and future instruments of the European Union’s policy of conflict prevention.
