Stop Mass Atrocities. Advancing EU Cooperation with Other International Organizations


The cooperation between the European Union and the United Nations, as well as other regional organizations, is assuming an increasingly important role in the prevention of mass atrocities and implementation of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). The present report, which is the result of a joint effort between the IAI in Rome and the EUISS in Paris, has been conceived as a mapping exercise of the EU’s ongoing and potential partnerships with other international organizations (namely the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the Council of Europe, the African Union, the Arab League, the Association of South-East Asian Nations and the Organization of American States) in these fields. The aim of the report is to assess both best practices and gaps, including areas that have not been explored or in which there is scope for improvement, in order to make policy recommendations that are relevant for all the actors involved.

Report published by IAI with the support of the EU Institute for Security Studies (EUISS).
