The project, coordinated by GGI, examines the core obstacles, prospects and ways ahead for a selected pool of European countries that are currently intensifying, or are likely to intensify, their engagement with United Nations peacekeeping: Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway. In addition, the project addresses other issues concerning the role of Europe and the European Union in UN peacekeeping and the re-engagement of larger EU member states, such as France, the UK and Germany. Thematic issues to be explored include, inter alia, the historical record of European countries' participation in UN Peacekeeping, current military capacities of selected countries and the prospects of enhanced inter-organizational cooperation between the European Union and the UN in Peacekeeping.
