Welcome on the website of the COST Action IS 0805
New Challenges of Peacekeeping and the European Union’s Role in Multilateral Crisis Management
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is an European instrument supporting cooperation among researchers across Europe (seminars, conferences, researchers exchange program, organisation of Training-Schools)
In the afternoon the Management Committee has elected Raquel Freire and Federico Santopinto Chair and vice-Chair of the Action. The program of the Action has also been discussed. On the menu: an International Conference in Rome organised with the Italian army, another Training-School in Geneva, several STSMs, a part of which coordinated toward a common topic, and the final Conference in Vienna, presenting the outputs of the Action.
There has never been any dearth of literature on the European Union and its external actions. How is it possible to make an informed choice from the thousands of pages displayed on the web on this topic? Published in the framework of the COST Action IS0805, the goal of this book is to guide the reader through this inextricable jungle towards quality publications. The authors also succeed in the rare feat of not succumbing to customary but egregious Anglophile sectarianism. As well as the admittedly majority quota of English-speaking documentation, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and Finnish articles are also included. The only criteria guiding this choice were quality and the pertinence of the subject.
