The EU is now emerging as a major actor in regional and global peacebuilding. The

EU does not perceive conflict as endemic, and develops its policy on the basis that

conflict is eminently resolvable if structural issues, needs, social injustice, and

inequality are addressed. Yet its peacebuilding project is subject to some significant

and familiar contradictions. We identify the basis for what may become a ‘EU

peacebuilding framework’ (EUPF), and argue that while it aspires to a ‘just and

durable peace’ including practical tools and a normative framework, these need to be

set in critical relief. Recent research on developing a more sophisticated form of

locally relevant peacebuilding (in contradistinction to the evolving, global

‘peacebuilding consensus’ and statebuilding project) indicates significant issues with

the EU’s emerging approach.
