The EU and UN Peace Missions

Module by Madeleine O. Hosli, United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS)


This lecture deals with patterns of interaction and synergies between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) in peace missions, discussing the current extent of collaboration and some limitations to increased coordination. The lecture starts with information on the range and scope of UN peace missions and then deals with the role of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in such missions. It then discusses the EU and peace missions over time and patterns of EU-UN collaboration in this framework. The lecture ends presenting organizational and other limitations to enhanced collaboration between these two institutions and then provides a summary of the main insights provided by the lecture.

Keywords: UN peace missions, peacekeeping, UNSC, EU-UN collaboration, blue helmets
