Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which presents the concept of peacebuilding and its evolution as a comprehensive multi-faceted policy framework. There, the notion of institution building in the law enforcement sector, a recurrent feature of European Union (EU) external action, plays a crucial role, located at the interface of security, development and justice or rule of law concerns in all post-conflict environments. This is complemented, in the book, by an appraisal of the main features of the constitutional framework and the factual situation of the law enforcement institutions in Kosovo and Afghanistan respectively, providing for, inter alia, a better understanding of the challenges of peacebuilding in this sector and of the EU's policy choices and selection of instruments. The instruments from the non- Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and the CFSP categories of the EU's peacebuilding toolbox, and their implementation, are presented in the book.

Keywords: Afghanistan; Common Foreign and Security Policy; European Union (EU); Kosovo; peacebuilding toolbox
