Summary

Academic counselling for the development of the Action Plan on Conflict Prevention of the German Government

One central aim of German foreign policy is the engagement in violent conflict prevention. Thus not only the Federal Foreign Office, but among others also the BMZ, Interior Ministry and Defence Ministry are carrying out projects in conflict prevention. ZEF was invited to counsel the editorial committee that should prepare the official action plan on civil conflict prevention of the German government. The role of the committee is to collect, evaluate and assess the various efforts of the German ministries and to develop an overall conflict prevention strategy for the German government.
