Chapter Summary

This chapter inquires into the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) elements of the European Union's toolbox in civilian peace-building. The lack of readily available international police personnel for deployment to Kosovo under UNMIK initially led the European Union to focus its Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) efforts on police missions. On the basis of Resolution 1244, an "international civil presence" was mandated to "perform the basic civilian administrative functions", but for an interim period. The chapter offers a brief description of a number of civilian EU operations, complemented by a thorough analysis of the missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan. It illustrates that the European Union has launched police missions over the complete range of strengthening "types" identified in its comprehensive concept, namely organisation and restructuring, training and selection, and monitoring and mentoring, that all represent different, but complementary and potentially synergy-creating avenues for assisting post-conflict police forces.
