Common Curricula - Civilian Crisis Management

Status message

Active context: context_uid_education_training-trainers

Since its inception, the European Community has been involved in conflict prevention and crisis management to protect human life and to promote human security. The Treaties of Maastricht and Amsterdam introduced new instruments for political/diplomatic and security/military action under the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). In subsequent steps, the European Councils in Cologne, Helsinki, Feira, Nice and Gothenburg have established that the European Union should strengthen its ability to undertake the full range of conflict prevention and crisis management tasks defined in the Treaty on European Union (the "Petersberg tasks") by developing the full range of civilian and military means at its disposal. To this end, dedicated structures for crisis management have been put in place within the Council of Ministers and within the European Commission. The Civilian Headline Goal 2008 set by the European Council of December 2004 confirms the EU’s ambition to be active, capable and effective in civilian crisis management.
