European Union

The European Union (EU) is a unique body of 27 member states in Europe – collectively they are a substantial economy and the world’s leading development donor – and crucial for promoting peace, justice and security worldwide. The EU is a leading global influence for preventing conflict and responding to crises across the world.

Our work

Established in 2004, Saferworld’s Brussels office works closely with EU policymakers and organisations to inform policies which relate to conflict prevention and peacebuilding. We work with institutions including the European External Action Service and the European Commission, as well as partners such as the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office, to ensure that EU tools, programming and policies are grounded in analysis and perspectives from those affected by conflict.

Our expertise informed the EU’s conflict early warning system and its conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity practices.
